Diploma in International Hospitality Management (Mandarin)
The Diploma in International Hospitality Management is developed by London School of Business and Finance (LSBF) as a first-year course towards a progression route for students aiming for a higher qualification in the field of hospitality management. Students have to attend a course of study of not less than 264 guided learning hours and may be selected to undergo on-the-Job Training of 6 months in an established hospitality establishment in Singapore. Failing which, students will prepare and submit a written project within 3 months.
Throughout the course, students are fully supported and their development checked frequently by progress assessments. Student performance and satisfaction is monitored to ensure that the course meets students’ academic and personal development needs; and industry contacts ensure that the programme is relevant and suitable for the demands of a career in hospitality management.
The Diploma in International Hospitality Management awarded by LSBF aim to focus on the latest development in the hospitality industry. It will help the students to identify and understand the techniques and theory implied in the hospitality environment. Students are given emphasis on developing professional hotel competencies such as effective communication skills, good customer service skills, leadership, team work and other relevant professionalism topics related to the industry.
