George Brown College’s Tourism and Hospitality Management program, you will learn about the exciting and diverse tourism industry with courses in culinary tourism, heritage tourism, and sustainable tourism. Your first year in this program will provide you foundational industry knowledge, by learning and working alongside your peers across all sectors in their School of Hospitality and Tourism Management, referred to as a “common first year approach”. In your first year you will gain knowledge in the areas of hotels, event planning, tourism, and food and beverages through a range of practical and theoretical courses.

As part of your fourth semester, you will complete a 14-week industry externship with your choice of a nationwide or international placement. This opportunity will enhance your knowledge with real-world experience and help you start building your network of contacts. Completing the Tourism and Hospitality Management program will make you the kind of multi-talented graduate the local and international tourism industry is seeking in today’s competitive environment.

Graduates gain the skills required to be progressive leaders within the industry, enriching the experience of tourists. You will receive industry certifications in food safety, responsible alcohol beverage service, TICO Travel Counsellor Certification and first aid (CPR). To better hone your international tourism and hospitality management skills you have the option of participating in an exclusive Experiential Study Tour.

This program allows you to switch into any of their hospitality and tourism management programs by your second year, should your hospitality area of interest change. As well, they know life can be full of unexpected events; should you not be able to complete your final year of study, their common first year model makes you eligible to graduate with a 1-year certificate in Hospitality Services.

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!
