  • CBU is home to the first IHG Academy in Canada – a program of Intercontinental Hotels Group that provides students with an opportunity to earn a certificate from the IHG Academy for students who perform their work experiences at a participating IHG facility.

Although enrolment varies each semester, the program recently hosted 269 full-time students from Canada and eight other countries.

  • Countries represented in the student body include: China, Saudi Arabia, Korea, Bahamas, Canada, Brazil and Russia.
  • Because of the worldwide need for tourism industry professionals, CBU’s Bachelor of Hospitality and Tourism Management degree program is extremely popular with international students. However, it is also an ideal program for local students to gain employment skills and exposure to other countries through interactions in class.

The Bachelor of Hospitality and Tourism Management degree program is a three-year general degree offered through the School of Business that encompasses courses spread over the hospitality, tourism, business/management, humanities, social science, and English academic disciplines.

The program includes two compulsory six-month paid industry internships which occur between May and October in the first and second year of study. Internships must meet suitable industry internship criteria. An internship co-ordinator (Paul Hanna) will arrange recruitment presentations and provide students with the opportunity to be interviewed on campus by national, provincial, and regional establishments for internship placement. Students are also encouraged to seek internship opportunities on their own, although all eligible internship placements are subject to approval by the Internship Co-ordinator.

Academic terms 3 and 5 begin in mid-October allowing time for students to complete the 540 hours of approved industry employment required to fulfill the industry internship component of the program.

Students should consult an academic advisor about appropriate electives.

Program courses are spread across the hospitality/tourism (industry-specific), business (management) and non-business (liberal education) disciplines

Through their own hard work and commitment, students entering all academic schools at CBU earn scholarships that are generated through the generosity of donors who contribute to the university’s fundraising efforts.
