“My education [at] Boston has helped me in acquiring the necessary skills and knowledge to excel in the hospitality industry.”Jean Paul Zaayman, CTH Advanced Diploma in Hotel Management, 2011

Shaped by its vision to become a known leader in adult and post-secondary education, Boston Business School (BBS) offers academics of the highest industry standard. This school constantly advances the Hospitality Management field through its relevant, rigorous programmes, refining the next generation of competitive talent in a workforce that’s both global and highly-skilled.

Set in Singapore’s flourishing Bugis district, students here are active, engaged and incredibly connected, with outstanding public transport links that get them to class within minutes. Known as a cultural melting-pot and hub for all things hospitality, BBS students are at the heart of industry’s latest developments, inspired by the region’s prospering hotel, restaurant, shopping and entertainment landscapes.

“Boston Business School is where our students begin their lifelong journey,” says Jeffrey Yung Yew Chun, Executive Director of the School. “Our students…drive towards attaining a new learning mindset that enhances their knowledge, skills and attitude,” he explains. “…We aim to create a conducive learning environment through committed staff and up-to-date facilities.”

Prepare for the next chapter of your life with the CTH Level 4 Diploma in Hospitality Management (QCF)

Expertly blending the practical element with core management principles, the Level 4 Diploma at BBS is the perfect preparation for employment in the sector, or otherwise a sound foundation for more advanced study. Covering everything from room supervision and operation to food and beverage functions, finance, global tourism, and customer service; this programme stands at the leading-edge of hospitality study.

The Diploma is delivered through classroom teaching sessions, group projects, individual assignments, case studies, and industry visits, giving students the chance to absorb every aspect of the field.

Run on a six-month full-time or 9-month part-time basis, this course pledges prestige and flexibility in equal measure, serving the needs of the aspiring hotel magnate and the experienced working professional.

Upon successful completion of the course, students find themselves facing multiple pathways of potential. Those who choose not to progress onto the CTH Level 5 Diploma benefit from access to some of the world’s top-performing universities, since the programme has been specifically-designed to broadly match the first year of a BA degree.

And if that doesn’t seem like the right fit for you, there’s plenty more on offer, with the beaming lights of Singapore’s hotel and business sector shining right outside your door.

Armed with her sought-after qualification from BBS, Marie Lim Chiew Leng took up work as a casino croupier. Since then, Marie has embarked on a venture of learning and development, adopting an attitude that has allowed her to excel as she progressed through various organisations. Now, the former student is employed as Business Development Manager for a renowned publishing firm, acknowledging that the transferrable skills and knowledge she gained in her time at BBS continue to drive and support her career success.

Marie states that: “Studying at Boston exposed and prepared me for the challenges required to excel in modern working society.”
