Carlton Nevis Master of International Tourism and Hotel Management |
The Hotel School Sydney gave me the insights, skills and knowledge I needed to succeed in the industry. I started my almost 10-year tenure with the Four Seasons Hotel Group which took me from Sydney, Australia to Austin, Texas and finally to the new flagship property in Toronto, Canada, working in various roles starting as a line level employee and growing into senior management positions. - Bachelor of Business in Hotel Management, graduated 2007

As a student of The Hotel School, my best experience so far was the field trip to Hayman Island, Great Barrier Reef. I had a full day to work as an employee and stay in the staff village and a day to experience the resort as a guest. I learnt a lot about life and work at an island resort and had a wonderful time with my classmates. I believe with the school network and reputation, along with the knowledge I gain during my studies, The Hotel School qualification will be my ticket to a successful future in the industry.
