As you may know, a revisioning process is underway to enhance the Hospitality and Tourism Management major within the BComm program and admission had been paused for the F22 and F23 intakes. As part of this process, former Dean Lysa Porth hired an external consultant (McPhie Consulting) to engage with internal and external stakeholders. I would like to thank everyone who took part in the consultation process.
I’m thrilled to share that we are in a position to un-pause admission for the Hospitality and Tourism Management major, with intake targeted for Fall of 2023. This major and HFTM are critically important to the continued success of Lang as we will look to bolster our recruitment efforts and connections to the hospitality and tourism industry.Over the summer term, we will also be implementing the recommendation from the consultant's report that the Sport and Event Management major be housed within the Department of Management.
HFTM will be launching a focused re-branding strategy for the re-visioned major, aligned with Lang's strategic plan, and we look forward to working with industry and our internal stakeholders as part of this renewal process.
