TU Dublin’s BSc in International Hospitality Management is truly a business degree specialising in the fun world of hotels and hospitality… this course provides a thorough base for any career path in the services industry and the chance to find your real niche – for me it was sales and marketing, and I chose to complete my internship at Burj Al Arab, Dubai. I now handle the Australian and New Zealand Markets for Four Seasons Hotel, Sydney. If travel through work in a dynamic and vibrant industry is what you want, this is the course for you.
I started this course in 2007 with the hopes that I would one day own my own restaurant. This course really gave an excellent rounded experience of both practical and theoretical modules that would help me to do that, and because of this course I am currently working in a luxury five-star property, with the prospect of becoming part of management when I have graduated. This course also will allow me the opportunity to work abroad in the future and that is an invaluable asset to somebody in the field of hospitality.
