One of the SHTM's top priorities is ensuring that its programmes are application-oriented to meet its students' needs. The School is geared towards preparing students for careers in the hotel, food service, tourism, and MICE sectors, offering various courses in hotel management and tourism management at the Doctor of Philosophy, Doctor of Hotel and Tourism Management, Master of Science, and Bachelor of Science (Honours) levels.
To meet the need for industry training, all undergraduate students are required to complete Work-Integrated Education, undertaking industry placements as part of their studies to gain hands-on experience in their chosen fields. The School is also very fortunate to have the support of scholarships donated by industry partners. For industry practitioners, the School offers an Executive Development Programme tailored for updating skills and broadening knowledge.
