Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT)

Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT) is Singapore’s university of applied learning. SIT's vision is to be a leader in innovative learning by integrating learning, industry and community. Its mission is to nurture and develop individuals who build on their interests and talents to impact society in meaningful ways.



SIT offers applied degree programmes targeted at growth sectors of the economy with a unique pedagogy that integrates work and study. SIT’s degree programmes feature an eight to 12-month Integrated Work Study Programme (IWSP) which exemplifies the best of university-industry collaboration.



Since its establishment in 2009, SIT has grown from its inaugural batch of 500 students in 10 degree programmes to over 5,000 students in 44 degree programmes from across SIT and 10 overseas university partners. These degree programmes are grouped into five clusters – Engineering (ENG), Chemical Engineering and Food Technology (CEFT), Infocomm Technology (ICT), Health and Social Sciences (HSS), as well as Design and Specialised Businesses (DSB).



SIT also aims to cultivate in its students four distinctive traits, or the SIT-DNA, which will prepare them to be ‘thinking tinkerers’, who are ‘able to learn, unlearn and relearn’, be ‘catalysts for transformation’ and finally, become ‘grounded in the community’.
 
Hospitality Business, B (Hons)
Programme Overview
Our Hospitality Business programme is the first and only hospitality programme offered by one of the five autonomous universities in Singapore. The primary objective of our three-year programme is to nurture hospitality professionals who are passionate about making positive and tangible contributions to the industry. In fulfilling industry needs, they will, at the same time, be competitive and forward-looking. Graduates of Hospitality Business can, therefore, expect to develop strong operational skills (know-how) anchored in solid theoretical knowledge (know-why). They will also acquire strong cultural sensitivity and critical thinking skills in line with the international nature of Singapore’s hospitality scene.

Curriculum

Students can expect a curriculum that combines theory and current industry practices. This will be taught against the backdrop of a Singapore-oriented context with industry specialisations in hotels, integrated resorts and MICE sectors. Further functional specialisations will allow students to pick up managerial skills in running and managing hospitality businesses, such as hospitality sales and customer relationship management, hospitality consumer behaviour and hotel real estate investment analysis. With a strong and diverse faculty possessing worldwide hospitality industry experience, classroom learning will be complemented by international practical applications and best practices.

A key aspect of our curriculum is SIT’s Integrated Work Study Programme (IWSP). Through this, students will work as employees of hospitality organisations to integrate real experience with classroom knowledge. As an applied learning platform, IWSP is envisioned to culminate in students becoming “Thinking Tinkerers” – by identifying hospitality issues for which they can develop innovative solutions through the Capstone module, i.e. an applied research project.

Career Opportunities

Hospitality Business graduates will be well-poised for positions in a myriad of hospitality organisations in Singapore and beyond. A sample of these include hotels, integrated resorts, MICE companies, tourism and hospitality consulting firms, tourism bureaus, food and beverage establishments, hotel management companies, cruise lines, tourist attractions, airlines and airports.
