Online Postgraduate Certificate

Online Postgraduate Certificate in International Hospitality and Service Industries Administration

The online postgraduate certificate is an opportunity for busy professionals to gain a recognized career qualification and earn credits toward completing the MBA.  Financially, this program spreads the cost of tuition for the MBA over a longer, more manageable period. 

Comprised of six courses from the Online MBA curriculum, the certificate covers key management concepts within the context of the hospitality and service industries. Of the six courses required to obtain the certificate, two are compulsory: Success Strategies for the Hospitality and Service Industries, and Managing Service Operations in the Evolving Business Environment; students choose the remaining four courses from the Online MBA.

Each of the six courses is eight weeks in length, making the length of the certificate approximately 15 months. To complete the remaining courses of the MBA requires an additional (approx.) ten months and four months for the Applied Business Project.
