The bustling world of hospitality is one that never sleeps. It connects you to people and the world through various means such as food and beverage (F&B), culture, arts, travel, tourism and accommodation services. Hospitality Management, for instance, is always sprouting new opportunities everywhere.
An annual report published by the Global Agricultural Information Network (GAIN) in 2018 showed that the Malaysian Hotel, Restaurant, and Institutional (HRI) industry is one of the fastest-growing sectors in the country.
HRI is a hands-on industry and requires a fair bit of people’s skills hence, why the service sector is fairly unaffected by the ongoing digital disruptions. While technology is important to grow and sustain the sector, the human touch remains crucial to its operations.
SEGi University’s School of Hospitality and Tourism (SOHT) has been producing high-quality graduates who are equipped with relevant skills in communications, teamwork, and problem-solving as well as in IT and technology that are essential for this vibrant industry.
In light of the IR4.0 development, SOHT is upgrading its curriculum to include elements of IR4.0, such as online ticketing, innovative room reservation and management, efficient cooking methodologies, and others in its syllabus, so that the transition into the industry would be smoother for graduates.
In addition, the high-quality study programmes offered by SEGi also provides graduates with a competitive edge and better employability standard.
Take the SEGi University’s Bachelor of Hospitality Management (Hons) programme for example. This double degree awarded in collaboration with the University of Central Lancashire, UK, not only widens your career options, but it also makes you globally marketable.
The other programmes also focus on experiential learning – also known as 2u2i – where you will be exposed to practical lessons and on-the-job training opportunities that provide a greater focus on the managerial and operational aspects of the respective industries.
The Diploma in Restaurant Management programme is an example of the 2u2i programme which provides a thorough exposure and understanding of restaurant operations and competencies required to serve in the industry.
The programme is developed with the help of SEGi’s industry partner QSR Brands (M) Holdings Bhd and experienced external examiners, making it highly relevant and competitive.
Besides gaining a strong foundation and relevant competencies through these programmes, you will also be able to expand your aptitude, shape your personality, and enhance your communication, decision-making, entrepreneurship and people management skills, – all of which are crucial for your growth in the industry.
