Course leaders and tutors
Your learning opportunities are not limited to the classroom. You’ll also be required to consult directly with a hospitality business to resolve a real-life business issue. The course will also involve the planning and delivery of hospitality events — from Chinese New Year parties to pop-up restaurant concepts.
Sheffield Hallam University will be hosting the Council for Hospitality Management Education annual research conference in 2020 and students are currently engaged in research to enhance the delegate experience, as part of their studies.
Industry interaction comes formally through visiting speakers and informally through our association with the Institute of Hospitality, our strong alumni network and the activities of our hospitality society. We're proud to be one of the founding partners of the Classroom to Boardroom event, which introduces you to a variety of stakeholders through the medium of round table discussions and networking activities. Students will have the opportunity to draw on career advice and direction from alumni through our mentorship scheme.
Students are encouraged to participate in competitions which celebrate success within the industry. Previous students have been winners or finalists of The Young Guns competition, an industry award that recognises those who have excelled during their placement year. Student teams have also represented the university at the EMCup, a European hotel school competition, as well as many others.
