Hospitality Management

The hospitality industry is a vibrant, energetic sector in which to launch a career, and a qualification in Hospitality Management from Auckland Institute of Studies (AIS) gives you access to this exciting job market.

Gain the expertise to pursue a management career across hotels, restaurants, cafes and other tourism businesses in the hospitality industry through our diverse range of programmes. Each will equip you with the skills, knowledge and training to excel in a variety of positions within the sector. Best of all, you will have an opportunity to gain valuable hands-on workplace experience and forge connections with industry leaders by completing an industry placement course in the third year of the Bachelor of Hospitality Management, as well as the final semester of the Graduate Diploma in Hospitality Management. These could grant you direct access to ongoing employment opportunities.

Such workplace experience comes at an opportune time, since there has been consistent growth in international visitor numbers. Tourism New Zealand has forecast spending in this sector, which, coupled with the expansion plans for airports, indicate that the country is preparing for further growth in the tourism and hospitality sector. Now is an excellent time to be career planning in this area, and with the help of the our industry relationships, alumni members and support from our in-house Student Careers Centre, we assist AIS Hospitality Management students in finding employment, both while you study and when you graduate.
