Beginning with the need to relocate, tourism has become a part of education due to necessity for knowledge, developing service industry and national demands. As individuals’ quest for education diversifies, the demand for schools on tourism gradually increases. Besides, the recent increase in demand for touristic facilities directly led to an increase in the demand for well-educated professionals to serve in the tourism sector.
BİLGİ Tourism and Hotel Management Program is designed to teach its students the basic principles of the sector and provide them with the up to date practical use of the theoretical material.
Beginning from 2016, İstanbul Bilgi University offers students certificate programs together with Kendall College, ranked the number one school in Chicago for hospitality management careers by Chicago’s leading hotels and also ranked the number 29 in the world in top 50 Global Hospitality School by CEO World Magazine. Students who enroll BİLGİ Tourism and Hotel Management Undergraduate Program have the opportunity to earn the “Kendall Hospitality Management Certificate” when they graduate.
Together with the Amendment signed in July 2017, BİLGİ Tourism and Hotel Management Undergraduate Program students will now have the chance to study and serve internship at Kendall or to complete their final year at Kendall College and obtain two degrees from both BİLGİ and Kendall and go on with an OPT - optional practical training - in the USA for a year after their graduation.
