Admission Requirements

Required: Five Grade 12 advanced or academic courses including English and Mathematics with a minimum average requirement of 65%.

Students may substitute one open course for one advanced or academic course, except where a particular course is specified. The Bachelor of Hospitality and Tourism Management program is a three-year general degree offered through the Shannon 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 years of study. Internships must meet suitable industry internship criteria.

Students are also encouraged to seek internship opportunities on their own. All internship placements are subject to approval by the internship coordinator.
