The growth of the hospitality industry has opened many doors for graduates in areas such as hotels, restaurants, night clubs, conference centres, cruise liners, retailing, transportation, travel agencies, tour companies, tourist attractions, leisure centres, recreation and sport and cultural industries. Work as a hotel manager, sales manager, food and beverage manager, or public relations manager - to name a few options.
