Confucius said “Choose a job you love and you won’t have to work a single day of your life” The choice of a career is one of the most important decisions a person can make in his/her life. It is also one of the most difficult. Studying hospitality management should not be a chance or a trend neither a fashion. It must be a will, an ambition and a passion for this field. Our world today is changing rapidly into a highly competitive global society and the hospitality industry is evolving day after day. It moved from the family business to partnerships and multiunit corporations. Tourism & Hospitality Management is now a major area of academic study, research and publishing. The Sagesse Faculty of Hospitality Management with the academic certification of Ecole Hôtelèire de Lausanne is becoming one of the most esteemed and well-known hospitality management faculty in the Middle East. This is due to its four core elements: Our cutting-edge programs that are dynamics, our campus that is a state-of-the-art academic hotel, our faculty members that are very professional and internationally well-known in the industry and certainly our talented students who are our future ambassadors in the hospitality industry worldwide. The degree is important but it is not the real point! We warn our students against studying for the sake of studying or in our terms studying to get the grade. We want our students to develop their academic knowledge but most importantly their cultural and ethical values and the respect for others. At the Sagesse Faculty of Hospitality Management we prepare our students to be life-long learners, innovators, and professionals capable of being the next new generations of leaders in their careers, committed to personal integrity and civic responsibility. It is now our pleasure to show you how we are fulfilling that mission.
