Eurhodip’s view on hospitality education
Hospitality and tourism education on all levels is an approach to teaching and learning that empowers individuals and prepares them to deal with complexity, diversity, and change in their professions in the hospitality and tourism industry. Education provides students with broad competences of the hospitality and tourism professions (e.g. environment, culture, and society) as well as in-depth study in a specific area of interest of students. Integrated education and learning strategies help students to develop a sense of social responsibility, as well as strong and transferable intellectual and practical skills such as communication, analytical and problem-solving skills and a demonstrated ability to apply knowledge and skills in hospitality and tourism industry. The Eurhoqual accreditation is the quality care program for the member school that gives the school a quality status and students the guaranty to be well educated.
