The final year of the HTM undergraduate degree is focused on applying the knowledge and skills learned over the last 3 years. Students partake in a yearlong capstone course that combines all areas of executive management in hospitality and tourism, including business development, strategic planning and problem analyses. Students engage in a consulting project with a local business, business etiquette across cultures, and personal professional development.
As a resume builder, HTM students are required to do two, 1-credit (200-hours), field work experiences exploring line-level positions in hospitality and tourism. Students are expected to undertake progressive levels of basic to advanced training. Students prepare and present a comprehensive written report reflecting upon their fieldwork experience.
