Faculty

The faculty that teaches subjects on International Hospitality Management includes hospitality industry practitioners who have honed their crafts in some of the best hotels and restaurants across the world. In teaching students, they relate their expert professional experiences in the context of classroom lessons.

INTERNSHIP

Internships are vital to a student’s learning. At Enderun Colleges, all bachelor’s degree candidates must complete two industry internships. The Office of Career Services coordinates with its growing number of Industry Partners to ensure that internships offer genuine learning and networking opportunities that complement classroom perspectives and enhance student career prospects.

The first internship, undertaken during the student’s sophomore year, offers broad exposure to the workings of international-category hotels, resorts, and caterers, and reinforces classroom instruction on hotel and restaurant operations with entry-level experience in hotel departments such as front office, housekeeping, sales and marketing, food & beverage and culinary arts.

A second internship, reserved for seniors, synthesizes lessons from Enderun’s general management curriculum and offers students the opportunity to gain real-world supervisory experience in local hotels. Seniors may also complete their senior internships abroad and gain international exposure in leading hotels and restaurants around the world.

Curriculum + Course Description
