The e-learning method is very user-friendly and allows you to 'study' on your own time, and take revision questions at the end of each chapter before you take the final exam.  Available learning resources include various interactive features such as videos, key terms, web links, case studies, and exhibits. 

Admission Requirements

The admission requirement for the Postgraduate Diploma in Hospitality Management is that a student must have a degree from a college or university, or have sufficient work experience at supervisory level, and be proficient in English language. You may enroll in this program at any time. 

Duration of Studies

Once you are connected to the virtual learning environment, you may complete a course within a month or two or three, but the maximum time you have to complete a course including taking the final exam is 180 days.
