Holmesglen's Bachelor of Hospitality Management (BHM) is a three-year degree for those aspiring to a career in hospitality management. The course provides operational and higher level management skills, contextualised for hospitality.

Students are challenged to collaborate and integrate technology, producing graduates who are confident in today's dynamic workplace. Students get the opportunity to put their learning into practice with two placement opportunities in the final year of study.

The range of options open to our graduates is enormous, from positions in major hotels, resorts, commercial catering operations, to restaurants and events management organisations. There are also abundant opportunities for graduates to establish their own businesses.

Hospitality is a world-wide industry; it is increasing its professionalism, requiring higher level qualifications from its workforce. Our Bachelor of Hospitality Management creates graduates ready to take on tomorrow's jobs.

At Holmesglen, we are committed to supporting our students to achieve their learning goals, so we provide small classes with hands-on experiences. With small classes, you won't be lost in the crowd. You'll soon get to know your fellow students and feel part of Holmesglen - and your teachers will know you as an individual.

All BHM academic staff have extensive industry experience and higher education teaching experience. The facilities used by students include the Zest training restaurant, coffee-making and kitchen facilities, the Holmesglen at Eildon campus for conference and student recreation facilities, as well as off-site visits to hospitality and tourism venues and businesses within Melbourne and regional Victoria.
