Bachelor of Hospitality Management (Phasing out 2023)
Modes of Study  Full-time
Duration 3 Years
Level Undergraduate
Course Code 07BHMN


The programme comprises a series of courses leading to specific competencies and has two exit levels, namely: 

Bachelor of Hospitality Management (NQF Level 7)  
Certificate in Hospitality Operations (NQF Level 5) 

The programme includes all courses covered in the first two semesters of the Certificate in Hospitality Operations (Level 5). At 
this  level  apart  from  the  emphasis  on  technical  skills  and  quality  delivery  of  customer  service,  there  is  also  an  emphasis  on 
written  and  verbal  communication  skills,  basic  computer  and  accounting  skills.  The  students  are  therefore  expected  to  take 
additional courses in English language, a foreign language, and business accounting and computer skills. In addition, the student 
must complete 240 credit hours of Work Integrated Learning at the commercial sector of the Hotel School and 600 credit hours 
of Work Integrated Learning in industry (off campus). The Work Integrated Learning exposes students to real life situations and 
thus prepares them for employment should they wish to exit at the certificate.
At  the  Bachelor’s  level,  students  are  exposed  to  higher  analytical  skills  and  knowledge  within  the  management  domain. 
Focus is on  service organisations. Courses  such as Cost & Management Accounting  for Hospitality and Tourism, Food and 
Beverage Management, Rooms Division Management and Hospitality and Tourism Management provide  students with an 
opportunity  to  examine  and  be  challenged  by  theories  and  practices  impacting  on  middle  to  high‐level  managers.  The 
programme is aimed at equipping students with the necessary advanced knowledge, expertise and skills necessary for upper‐
level managerial jobs, such as hotel managers and divisional managers. The students may also opt to develop and run their 
own hospitality businesses.
