What are the benefits of a hospitality degree?

Hospitality is the happiness industry. It’s also a serious contributor to the global economy, employing more than a tenth of the world’s workforce.

And it’s still growing in fresh and exciting ways, as new generations choose memorable experiences over material possessions.

There’s never been a better time to forge a career in hospitality.
