Hotel & Tourism Management - Overview


The School of Hotel and Tourism Management (SHTM) is part of Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK)'s school, a pioneer in business education in Hong Kong. SHTM was established in 1998 in view of the growing significance of the tourism industry in Hong Kong and Asia, and now features an AACSB and UNWTO accredited degree program offering students a business degree with a hospitality focus. The comprehensive curriculum at SHTM integrates business and hospitality education, with students receiving a balance of both practical and theory-based instruction. Business degree programs developed by SHTM are designed to nurture future leaders for the hospitality, tourism and real estate industries, and are divided into the following major concentration areas: Real Estate and Finance, Hospitality Marketing, Hospitality Human Resources and Hospitality Strategic Management. The educational experience is enriched through close collaboration with the hospitality and real estate industries, courses taught by senior executives, guest speaker engagements, internship placements, and exchange programs. In 2014, programs offerings have been expanded to include a Master of Science (MSc) program in Management of Real Estate and Hospitality Assets, attracting a group of 60 highly qualified university graduates from the region with an average of 670 GMAT scores in the 2015-2016 admission.

Our mission is to become the top Asian school to develop leaders for the hospitality, tourism and real estate industries by delivering excellence in strategic business education with a hospitality focus.

Our primary long-term objective is to develop a leading program in Asia that integrates business and hospitality education that places an equal emphasis on theory and practice. The School offers students numerous opportunities to learn the ropes from veteran industry players through program features such as the "Executive-in-Residence Program", "Distinguished Speakers Series" and the "Internship Program".
