Hospitality and Tourism Management

Hospitality and tourism are dynamic, diverse industries. The management skills you build at Sask Polytech let you move easily between hospitality to tourism sectors -- but you can apply them to careers in other sectors as well, including health care, education, financial services, and marketing and communications.

Saskatchewan Polytechnic's School of Hospitality and Tourism is well known for the quality of our programs, demonstrated by a 94% graduate employment rate. Join the growing network of Sask Polytech alumni making their mark in leadership positions in one of the world's fastest growing industries.

The Hospitality and Tourism Management post-graduate certificate is a one-year post-graduate program that combines the best of two worlds to fast-track you into a management career. The program condenses the core skills of two diploma programs into an advanced one-year course that will set you up for leadership roles in hospitality and tourism. Build skills in financial management, human resources, sales and marketing, leadership and group dynamics, business planning, organizational behaviour and more. You'll also gain specific skills in hotel, restaurant, tourism and facility management.

Offered at Sask Polytech's Prince Albert Campus, the program offers small class sizes with more one-on-one instructor time. You'll build your career network as well as new friendships as you learn in the classroom, hands-on labs and practical work experiences.
An undergraduate degree from an accredited university is the prerequisite to enrolling in the Hospitality and Tourism Management post-graduate certificate. The program is designed to help you leverage your degree and expand your career horizons by building your core management and leadership skills -- transferable skills in high demand in every sector.
