Love & Myth of Hospitality & Tourism Management

Hello everyone!! I am Shi Ying, a degree student of Hospitality & Tourism Management course from KDU University College. 

Interested in studying Hospitality & Tourism Management course but still hesitating about it? 

Have a look at the 3 myths or things to avoid and 3 things you gonna love studying this course. =)

--- 3 Myths / things to avoid ---

#1 Hotel & Tourism Management is an easy course!

This course doesn't just focus on hotel & tourism subject, we also learn about other general aspects of the business culture which can be very useful in other industries as well, such as: Financial management, Economics, Human Resources, and Corporate Social Responsibility etc.This course takes as much academical effort as any other courses.

#2 Avoid this course if you are not passionate about service-related industry

This course and its industry-related jobs require a lot of face-to-face human interaction. Some find it difficult to overcome their boundaries & tend to lose interest in it, and others might overcome it and love it. Therefore, analyze your own characteristics and interest before you make a decision to study this course. Avoid it if you are not passionate about service-related industry. Think twice and make your decision wisely.

#3 Wearing uniform everyday is a must in this course

It depends on your institution chosen. Some colleges are strictly abide by the rules of wearing uniform on a daily basis to portrait professionalism. There are also other institution who takes the uniform regulations slightly lighter. In my college, wearing uniform is only required on Monday and selected occasions. ^.^ 

 --- 3 things you gonna love ---

#1 Application of practical &theoretical knowledge
