The Bachelor of Business Administration in Hospitality develops exceptional decision-making and problem-solving skills. George Brown prepares hospitality business leaders and owners to thrive in a complex and dynamic industry and combine experiential learning through four-month paid terms working full-time in the industry.

The program is designed to teach you how to plan and manage complex integrated hospitality operations so that you can become one of the skilled, knowledgeable leaders in the hospitality sector. The curriculum has been developed to prepare students for management, supervisory and administrative careers through training in analysis and problem-solving, critical thinking, integrated operations, customer management and international applications. Students will become technically proficient in the major components of a hospitality business, including operational processes, finance, human resources, marketing, facilities, risk management, corporate social responsibility and sustainability.

George Brown works with employers and industry partners to identify potential work experience opportunities. Students are also strongly encouraged to pursue self-directed industry work experience opportunities they believe will provide the learning experiences they value and meet the program’s learning outcomes. This valuable work experience can be added to your resumé.

Co-operative education is an important component of this degree program. Students spend at least two four-month paid terms working full-time in the industry, giving them a chance to apply the knowledge they have acquired in a real-life, hands-on situation. Students obtain practical experience and further develop their skills – an asset for our graduates and their future employers. Students also establish valuable contacts with potential employers, and many graduates find full-time employment with their co-op employer.

This program is all hands-on all the time. The lessons and strategies I learned in the classroom helped prepare me for the exact challenges I faced in the classroom. Instructors were dedicated and empathetic. Best of all, there were more available field placements than there were students. Early childhood educators can't go wrong at George Brown in my opinion.

I had to adapt during a hard year of learning online at GB. I'm better at studying and learning and I had to practice discipline but I got a lot of support this year from teachers and support staff. The staff were doing their best. I just want to say thanks for that as an international student in Brazil. I'm hoping to see everyone in downtown Toronto next year!
