Dear Colleagues and Students,
The Department of Tourism and Hotel Management is offering a new minor program in Hotel Management as of 5 December 2018.
Over the past six decades, tourism has experienced continued expansion and diversification to become one of the largest and fastest-growing economic sectors in the world (UNWTO, 2018). As new destinations form the industry with large investment projects, the need for well-educated and skilled talents will further intensify in coming years.
Because of the importance of educated human resources in the industry, at the 3rd Tourism Council Meeting held by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism on 1-3 November 2018, a decision was taken to amend the existing laws and regulations (please see in detail below) concerning the qualification criteria in human resources which will be required in terms of formal education and certification in tourism.
With these motivations, Department of Tourism and Hotel Management offers a new minor program in “Hotel Management” for interested Bilkent students, to provide them with the opportunity for an international career, and new horizons.
The details of the program may be found on the following page https://stars.bilkent.edu.tr/homepage/curriculum.php?DEPT=THM
