To graduate from the Hospitality & Tourism Management program, students must complete 1,000 hours of documented real-world work experience in the hospitality and tourism industry. This provides students with the essential balance of theory and practice to succeed in hospitality and tourism upon graduation. It also allows students to try out a range of professional settings and to evaluate industry and management styles first-hand, helping them to clarify their academic and career goals.

We also have the option for our students to choose the Co-Op program instead of the 1000 hours of work experience. The HTM Co-Op Option provides students with up to 16 months of paid work experience. The Co-Op student would complete their program in 5 years to accommodate these 4 work terms.
