The Diploma in Hotel Management aims to provide students with a broad understanding of the operational aspects of the international hotel industry, and a knowledge of the underlying principles involved. The hospitality industry is one of the largest industries in the world providing job opportunities to millions. Each year progressively more meals and bed nights are purchased, which is why the hotel industry is experiencing rapid growth. Customers are becoming ever more demanding in their requirements for high standards of service and facilities. It is only through a professional and structured training that the industry can meet these demands. Successful completion of the CTH Diploma programme gives direct entry to a CTH Higher Diploma course.
