Véronique Borduas, 2016 graduate

I enrolled in the ASIHM program because I wanted the best training that would make me a well-rounded manager, no matter what establishment I worked at. Through this program, I developed my curiosity and analysis skills and explored many management-related fields. This has been very useful in a job like mine that requires you to wear many hats!

The ITHQ network gives us access to management positions at the world's best hotels starting from our very first internship. For twelve months, we get in-the-field training to apply what we have learned in class and to develop our skills by offering our employers new solutions. Once you get out into the workplace, you can really see how great this program is!

Valeriya Troshyna, 2013 graduate

Housekeeping Supervisor
The practical experience taught me just how capable I am of achieving my objectives. During the two internships, you really have to make every effort to succeed or you'll find yourself giving up when you're only halfway there. You have to manage your time well to succeed. After completing the program, I knew I’d be able to meet the most extreme challenges in my professional career.
