Hospitality is a unique sector because it is an industry where there are opportunities all over the world. It makes sense that, given that the industry creates an international and global playground for those who want to work in and study hospitality, that many choose to take their degrees and studies abroad. If you’ve ever thought about this industry, here are some reasons to study hospitality abroad:
- Nothing is out of bounds in your career; a degree in hospitality management translates well into different countries, but also allows graduates the opportunity to advance quickly, and indeed with no limits. There are careers in restaurant management and pub ownership; positions range from the finest of dining to the most casual fare.
- The world is your oyster; as mentioned, this degree is your one-way ticket to other countries, whether you want to work on a beach or on the snowy mountain peaks. It is also a great way to meet other people and create an extensive and diverse network.
- An ever-evolving industry; this industry is one which is always changing, innovating and, most importantly, growing. There will undoubtedly always be an increasing demand for restaurants and bars, as people need to eat. This is an industry with excellent job security, and, in fact, it is estimated that as soon as 2026, one in nine jobs will be work in hospitality
- Variety of skills; the industry will teach you a wide variety of skills which many other industries and sectors cannot teach you at once. From leadership to interpersonal to organisational skills, there is so much depth to the work you will do, that you will be exposed to a wide variety of situations and experiences, and you will be well equipped to continue on a fast-tracked career path, or even switch industries should you want to.
