Being the leading hospitality and tourism education provider institution in Australia, The Hotel School (THS) dedicates itself to offer various career choices to its graduates. Consistent with this mission, THS has initiated a pioneering and world-class initiative - ‘Hospitality Entrepreneurship’ to induce creativity and innovation within the hospitality and tourism sector. THS strongly endorses the concept that entrepreneurial spirit is an integral part of tomorrow’s graduates which not only helps to transfer theoretical knowledge into innovative business models, but also creates future leaders who can transform the industry. Furthermore, entrepreneurial spirit is considered instrumental to becoming successful within an organisation through the manifestation of Intrapreneurship or Corporate entrepreneurship. To this end THS is a founding partner of HotCubator, a social enterprise aiming to build an entrepreneurship culture within the hospitality and tourism education in Australia. With the motto to Engage, Inspire and Innovate, HotCubator incubates creative ideas and transforms them into great business models.
