Hotel & Tourism Management: Offers You What it Takes to Become the Next Global Hotelier
Have you ever thought of pursuing a career in hospitality? A career in hospitality has actually become something that is often looked at. Many people want to be able to work for Hilton, InterContinental Hotels Group, Marriott, Four Seasons, Ritz Carlton, and many others. Of course being able to work in world-class hotels can be a prestigious career, but do you have what it takes to be the next global hotelier? Of course, to be able to pursue a career in international hospitality, an equivalent education is needed so that you can adapt to the international work environment.
SGU offers a Bachelor’s Degree in Hotel & Tourism Management program with opportunities for students to study and complete their internship programs in Germany, Switzerland, or anywhere in the world. Our programs are carried out in English by experienced lecturers who have completed their studies and have lived / worked overseas.
SGU Hotel & Tourism Management offers accredited degrees with international exposure in Germany and Switzerland through our partner universities (Fachhochschule Südwestfalen and IMI Switzerland). IMI Switzerland is acknowledged as one of the leading providers of education in Switzerland that offers a series of hospitality, tourism, culinary, and global business management related programs.
Given that SGU Hotel & Tourism Management has several practical courses, we continue to make sure the learning process continues during the pandemic. Students can still take practical classes during the pandemic through a hybrid plan system which is a combination of online and offline. This offline class can be followed without coercion, students who live in the Jakarta and Tangerang areas are encouraged to attend practicum as long as they have received permission from their parents. In addition, because the practicum course is conducted offline, SGU Hotel & Tourism Management also adheres to class protocols and requirements such as the number of certain students in one meeting, as regulated by SGU Gugus Tugas Covid-19 Team.
Speaking of internships, every SGU Hotel & Tourism Management student will be required to take part in two internships: in Indonesia and abroad. In their first internship in Indonesia, students will usually enter the Room Division, such as Front Office or Housekeeping. In the second internship, they will usually be directed to take the Food and Beverage field, such as hot kitchens (a kitchen that supports the use of heat in cooking all sorts of ingredients, whether by boiling, steaming, frying, stir-frying, stewing or roasting, etc.), cold kitchens (a kitchen that supports cooking processes that do not require heat), or restaurant service.
In the second internship, anyone who studies Hotel & Tourism Management at SGU can have the opportunity to do an internship in Europe such as Germany or Switzerland. Students taking an internship in Germany will be required to take a six month internship program, but if they choose to go to Switzerland, they will be required to do an internship for six months while continuing one semester at IMI Switzerland (two semesters in total). This is what characterizes SGU Hotel & Tourism Management, because you will definitely be exposed to the European Internship Experience and work with people who are experienced in their fields. However, students also have the freedom to take internships in other countries with good hospitality growth such as the United Arab Emirates (Dubai, Abu Dhabi), Qatar (Doha), or Hong Kong.
SGU Hotel & Tourism Management graduates will earn a bachelor’s degree in management under the business administration faculty. Given that the world of hospitality and tourism is growing rapidly both in Indonesia and abroad, SGU graduates can get excellent career prospects in managerial level positions. They will have career opportunities to work in national and multinational organizations within the hospitality industry, such as accommodation, business in travel & tourism, and marketing events. In addition, graduates are also trained with professional business skills to operate within this industry as future supervisors, managers, and owners.
