The New Zealand hospitality industry is booming. Figures from the Restaurant Association show that around 50 percent of people dine out at least once a week. From March 2015 to March 2016 overall sales increased by 8.5 percent, with 9.7 growth occurring the following year. As of September, the total earnings of the hospitality industry have topped $11 billion. With good quality hospitality workers in demand, now is the perfect time to upgrade skills and gain useful and meaningful qualifications.

Established in 1990, Auckland Institute of Studies (AIS) is one of New Zealand’s largest private degree-granting institutions. Over 20,000 students have passed through its doors since opening, with 4,200 degrees and higher diplomas awarded in this time.

The Bachelor of Hospitality Management is designed for students wishing to acquire a managerial role in the fast-growing hospitality sector in New Zealand or overseas. The BHM includes courses that provide a strong foundation in the key functions of management, marketing and economics. Students will also acquire the skills to implement best practice across a broad range of hospitality operations.

With a focus on hospitality business acumen, the BHM also allows students the opportunity to gain first-hand industry practice at Stage 3 level. To support BHM students further, and through quality hospitality industry relationships, students are assisted with employment opportunities during their study via the AIS Student Careers Centre.
