Word from the Dean
The School of Hospitality and Tourism Management (SHTM) has evolved from a humble beginning as a diploma conferring department. It offers industry relevant programmes at certificate, diploma and undergraduate levels. It trains and educates leaders for the dynamic and global hospitality industry, by combining a broad educational foundation with real-world experiences, a strong interface between theory and practice, and other opportunities for the students to hone their leadership and communication skills.
The faculty staff inspires the students to pursue academic excellence in their studies, to be independent learners, flexible problem solvers, effective communicators and professionally, socially and globally responsible hospitality leaders with a positive attitude and a strong work ethic.
Additionally the school offers foreign languages to prepare the student for the global market. With the establishment of our one of a kind teaching and research hotel, the school leadership role in hospitality research has been enhanced.
