Centennial College prides itself on catering to a wide range of students. As such, it offers

One such program is the Hotel, Resort and Restaurant Management undertaking, which
allows students to graduate in two short semesters and launch careers in areas such as:
hotel and restaurant general management, human resources management, sales and
marketing management, convention services management, housekeeping management,

Each hotel management course in this offering consists of both theory and practical
application of that theory. Led by industry-experienced instructors, students use operational
lab practice facilities, a full service student-operated restaurant, modern computer labs that
