The term Hospitality Management is most commonly associated with Hotels but also includes careers in entertainment venues, restaurants, bars and casual-dining, event management and contract catering.
This four year course is designed to equip graduates with a broad range of business skills combined with a thorough knowledge of the hospitality environment. During the first semester of year 3, students are required to complete a placement organised by the college in a hospitality organisation in Ireland or abroad. Students are actively involved in the decision making process in order that their choice of work experience is appropriate to their career aspirations and interests. This work experience allows students to gain real experience of working in a hospitality business.
Past companies who have been involved in the placements include: Four Seasons, Hilton, Westin, Mount Juliet Conrad, Park Hotel Kenmare, Jurys-Doyle, Tower Hotel Group and many more
