It’s time for an update! You may remember our previous blog on the top universities as ranked by QS World University Rankings. A new update has come out covering the top hospitality schools in the world for 2019.
Hospitality is unlike most industries. You can work in almost any sector with or without having a hospitality degree. Some people believe that only those with a degree are able to move up the ranks, whilst others believe that it’s about the years of experience you have.
You submitted your CV and instead of the automated, “we’ll keep your CV on file in case something opens up in the future” response, it’s an email about setting up a phone call, video chat, or face-to-face interview. Exciting! Now, you are one of many who are going to be interviewing for this role.
But how do you prepare for these interview scenarios? Should you treat them all the same?
If it’s one thing I’ve noticed about the people who are dominating the hospitality industry these days, it’s their innovative thinking. It’s one thing to stay with the times, but I’ve noticed that most of the top hospitality leaders are looking towards the future. How do they do that? Well, they have their ear to the ground. They are always learning from other great leaders and testing out ideas.
There are thousands of universities across the world, many with outstanding reputations. However, not all schools are made equal. There are some schools like Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard, or Stanford that people dream of attending. Yet, these schools would not be the ideal place to attend if you are someone who is interested in studying hospitality management.
