4/16/2014 | BUSINESS AND MANAGEMENT Page ContentIf you’re the type of person who enjoys working with people, then you should consider either a public management course or a hospitality management course. These are two very different courses that enable graduates to facilitate the human aspect of events, situations and areas. Whilst many people believe they work well with others, and are able to manage other people in a work environment, the processes needed to guarantee smooth people management are tricky and sometimes not always obvious. Public management courses are available to provide students with the tools they’ll need to appropriately manage large groups of people. If you complete a public management course, you will become qualified to work in industry that deals with large groups of people. Whilst these skills apply to the government sector, they are also easily transferable to other industries such as airport and harbour management. There are also opportunities to work in areas such as environmental protection. Working in a company that hires large amounts of people is also a possibility. The skills gained in public management courses enable graduates to perform quality control on staff administration and to ensure that staff are being provided for, the maintenance of their work environments is performed and that all staff are properly trained. Whilst hospitality management courses train students to engage with people, this is generally on a smaller scale. Rather than finding the easiest way to herd people from entrance to exit, hospitality management courses are designed to give students the best understanding of how to work efficiently in one of the fastest growing and most dynamic industries in the world. Apart from the obvious positions in hotels, graduates of a hospitality management course are well qualified to work in the events industry, on airlines and cruise ships, theme parks, resorts and in the catering industry. As well as being trained in a variety of skills and methods of management, graduates are also exposed to intensive work environments that test commitment, concentration, restraint and attitude. A career in the hospitality industry is an intense and sometimes difficult career path, but has the potential to hold incredible rewards. If your dream is to travel the world, stay in the most beautiful parts of a variety of countries or to start your own business, a hospitality course could be the start you need!
