Launch your career

Complete your degree with an internship to bridge your education to a career. Internship host employers are partners who will support your professional success.

The internship is a minimum of three months and typically begins the third week of May.  At the end of the internship 80% of students continue employment with their internship host employer. Employers gain professionalism, commitment and fresh insights from students like you, who have come straight to them from a rigorous hospitality or tourism degree.  Gain an opportunity to apply your studies, demonstrate your abilities and launch their career.

94% of the international hotel management students received an excellent or very good overall performance rating by internship host employers for their internship in 2013.
