Students will secure an internship in a professional setting under the supervision of a Hospitality and Tourism Management Professional (HTMP) that allows them to apply the skills and knowledge acquired from their previous coursework. The internship includes a minimum of 100 hours, which may be paid or unpaid. This experience is directed by an agreement developed by the HTMP instructor, the employer and the student. The agreement identifies the appropriate competencies, duties and tasks in academic, technical and work readiness areas that apply directly to the students’ goals in establishing a career in the hospitality industry. The HTMP instructor is responsible for monitoring students’ placements and documenting students’ progress. Students will rotate assignments within the professional facility.
