The Hotel School was founded in 1989 as an integral part of InterContinental Sydney with the vision of creating Australia’s best talent in Hospitality.

From the outset, The Hotel School focused on developing future leaders who would also possess the practical skills required to operate a business.

The courses offered at the Hotel School focus on hotel operational skills, management practice in the tourism and hospitality industry and the skills needed for continued learning in a changing global business environment. Students develop into dedicated professionals with qualifications that are recognised and highly regarded internationally.

In the 28 years it has been operating, The Hotel School has perfected education to prepare graduates to deliver World Class Hospitality.

This means students are prepared to live and work in a demanding and challenging globalised environment.

The Hotel School is a unique partnership between Southern Cross University, an Australian public university, and Mulpha Australia, a major investor in the hotel industry.
