I came to Canada looking for a better place to live, study, and set my career high. The Hospitality post-degree program enlightened me at every step. The internship gave me real life experience, which was a boon.

14 months after landing and two months after graduating from one of the best university on the West Coast, I found work at an elite hotel chain. And I am only one of many alumni who have reached success. Join us and become part of a challenging and worthwhile industry.
