Our Associate Degree students' main purpose is to enter the Hospitality Industry

They are as driven and agile as our BBA students but their goal is to enter the Hospitality Industry as fast as possible. They know they will develop their carreer in Hotels and want their undergraduate years to be filled with as many practical experiences as possible.  

The entry requirements and application process for the Associate of Business Administration degree are the same as the Bachelor of Business Administration programme.
