About Us

about-usIHT Hotel School — Stu­dent focused,
ser­vice driven.

IHT Hotel School is reg­is­tered by the Depart­ment of Higher Edu­ca­tion and Train­ing as a Pri­vate Higher Edu­ca­tion Insti­tu­tion offer­ing ter­tiary edu­ca­tion in the field of hos­pi­tal­ity. At IHT Hotel School we edu­cate and equip stu­dents with the skills that will enable them to become the lead­ers in tomorrow’s hos­pi­tal­ity sector.

Know­ing that a qual­ity aca­d­e­mic ser­vice is the key, a learn­ing envi­ron­ment is cre­ated that encour­ages stu­dents to pur­sue intel­lec­tual and per­sonal growth and which guar­an­tees the cur­rency, rel­e­vancy and integrity of the qual­i­fi­ca­tions offered.

Our lec­tur­ing staff not only has excel­lent qual­i­fi­ca­tions com­bined with lec­tur­ing expe­ri­ence, all have expe­ri­ence of work­ing in the hos­pi­tal­ity indus­try. They are there­fore well equipped to update and enhance learn­ing mate­r­ial in order for it stay rel­e­vant to and cur­rent to trends in the indus­try. Stu­dents receive indi­vid­ual atten­tion if and when needed because at IHT stu­dents are not merely just a num­ber, they are man­agers in the making.

A wide vari­ety of inter­ac­tive events binds the stu­dent and lec­tur­ing body together which forms the foun­da­tion of our unique­ness. Our Fun Days together with our Annual Stu­dent For­mal and Char­ity events are some of the high­light events at IHT.

YOUR ROAD TO SUC­CESS starts here…

IHT stu­dents are highly sought after in the hos­pi­tal­ity indus­try. So much so that 90% of our stu­dents have one or more job offers for full­time employ­ment dur­ing their final work-​integrated learn­ing ses­sion or by grad­u­a­tion day!

Career options in hos­pi­tal­ity are not lim­ited to tra­di­tional hotel and restau­rant busi­nesses. Hos­pi­tal­ity grad­u­ates are highly val­ued in ser­vice sec­tors such as tourism, lux­ury retail, mar­ket­ing, finance and tech­nol­ogy where cus­tomer loy­alty depends on qual­ity ser­vice and experience.

So wher­ever you want to take your career – IHT Hotel School is the place to get you started!

The inter­na­tional busi­ness land­scape is con­stantly chang­ing and fas­ci­nat­ing career oppor­tu­ni­ties are now open­ing up because of the lat­est need aris­ing for hos­pi­tal­ity exper­tise in other indus­tries and businesses.

A grow­ing num­ber of cor­po­rate busi­nesses rec­og­nize the strate­gic impor­tance of the “hos­pi­tal­ity ele­ment” and are now turn­ing to hos­pi­tal­ity grad­u­ates for a par­tic­u­lar com­bi­na­tion of skills that is hard to find elsewhere!

Many hotel, travel and event sec­tors con­tact our cam­pus reg­u­larly to look to recruit stu­dents each semes­ter for intern­ship and employ­ment opportunities.

Hos­pi­tal­ity is also one of the world’s fastest grow­ing and most dynamic fields of employ­ment with pos­i­tive trend fore­casts for the com­ing years. Accord­ing to the World Travel & Tourism Coun­cil (WTTC), the indus­try will account for 1 in 10 jobs on the planet by 2023.

At IHT we teach all aspects of tra­di­tional and con­tem­po­rary man­age­ment with a broad per­spec­tive that takes into account all the eco­nomic, human, and cul­tural issues involved. We will assist you to develop your pro­fes­sional and per­sonal skills to their max­i­mum, ready­ing you to enter the cor­po­rate world or start your own business.

Dur­ing your time at IHT you will acquire essen­tial busi­ness skills like com­mu­ni­ca­tion, analy­sis, and entre­pre­neur­ship. You will nur­ture a hos­pi­tal­ity mind-​set and per­fect your soft skills such as atten­tion to detail, self-​improvement, deter­mi­na­tion, respect, and integrity. All of this will max­i­mize your employability.

Feel free to con­tact us if you would like to make an appoint­ment to visit our cam­pus — we’d be happy to wel­come you!’
