The studies are real-world orientedand reflect what is currently happening in the field.The MATM program was a transformationalexperience and today I’m at a whole new level.RRU is large enough to have all the necessaryresources but small enough to be intimate.The level of support I received from my instructorsand the administrative staff went far beyondanything I had experienced at other post-secondaryinstitutions.

My schooling has opened many doors.The MATMprogram was atransformationalexperience andtoday I’m at awhole new level.Ray FreemanMA in Tourism ManagementRoyal Roads University Tourism & Hospitality 3

  10. 10. 8The instructorswere alwaysresponsive andready to helpout at any time.Jeet JaniBA in International Hotel ManagementAfter spending two years at a Calgary college,I was ready to complete my degree. Royal RoadsUniversity’s BA in International Hotel Managementcame up as a good option because of the condensed,one-year curriculum; the small class sizes;and the focus on real-life experiences. Some otherprograms I looked at were more like businessdegrees with some hotel management offerings;in comparison, RRU is preparing you to become a hotelmanager working in the industry. At RRU, I foundthe instructors were always responsive and readyto help out at any time: the core faculty membersbecame mentors, sharing their perspectives andhelping to solve problems, while the associate faculty,the industry professionals, brought current, real-lifeexperiences and issues into the classroom.
