You will also become aware that you are responsible for your own learning process. You will also learn the basic skills associated with working at operational level in hotels and restaurants. You will learn skills such as cooking, serving and working at the Front Desk. You also become acquainted with the basics theories of hotel management and learn to apply these in actual situations. For example, you work on a project to make an architectural design for your own hotel or you design a website for your hotel.

During the first year, all students taking the Bachelor course stay at the Skotel, the School’s Training and Study Hotel.

Phase 2
In this stage, you are expected to show more initiative. The programme concentrates on the various key management areas: Marketing Management, Financial Management, Operations Management, Information Management.

In this phase, you will be faced with problems like how to achieve higher quality, how to work more efficiently, how to achieve greater guest satisfaction. These problems require you to use all your management knowledge and the theoretical models that you were taught. The problems may occur in the restaurant, the kitchen, in the hotel or elsewhere.

Phase 3
In the third stage of the programme you are challenged to react to the consequences of  constant changes. As a manager in the hospitality industry you need to find solutions to anticipated problems, to take advantage of possible opportunities and to implement any changes required. Creativity, innovation and strategy are the keywords in this process. The management domains return in this stage: Marketing, Finance, Operations, Personnel and Organisation and Information Management. You will find out that many of the problems you face cover more than one domain.
