It’s never been easier or more cost-effective to study for a career in one of the fastest-growing industries – thanks to the IIE School of Hospitality & Service Management.
The school, which provides a new gold standard in industry-aligned service and hospitality-focused qualifications, has launched an affordable distance-learning division in addition to its on-campus training.
The IIE Higher Certificate in Hospitality Management is a full-time one-year course with in-takes in March and July 2021. It also creates a pathway to enrol for the three-year IIE Bachelor of Hospitality Management degree – a qualification for those who aspire to become leaders in the hospitality and service industry.
Those who choose to study the one-year course online will pay only R1,999 monthly over a period of 13 months.
The IIE Bachelor of Hospitality Management, with intakes in March and July 2021, compares favourably with the qualifications from renowned institutions around the world, including the Business, Hospitality and Management School in Switzerland with whom the School of Hospitality and Service Management is accredited.
The School of Hospitality & Service Management has officially joined South Africa’s largest private education provider, the Independent Institute of Education (IIE), which is part of the ADvTECH Group, Africa’s leading provider of primary, secondary and tertiary private education.
Hospitality graduates of leading global hospitality institutions have long been sought to fill senior roles in service-focused sectors as they bring with them a strong commercial acumen, an understanding of high-pressure environments and most importantly a customer-focused and service-centric empathy and work-ethic that makes them highly adept at navigating customer experience-driven industry roles.
Qualified students will be able to enter a multitude of positions within companies, including sales, marketing, accountancy, HR, consultation, product development and more. All these are roles that require a strong customer-centric attitude and employees who understand client interface and can handle various crises and diversity.
“The opportunities for graduates are limitless,” adds Candice Adams, Academic Manager.
