Prosser, WA (PRWEB) July 25, 2013
Red Comet’s “Hospitality & Tourism: Travelling the Globe” launched this summer along with several new electives that supplement Red Comet’s existing high school curriculum. With greater disposable income and more opportunities for business travel, people are traversing the globe in growing numbers. As a result, hospitality and tourism is one of the fastest growing industries in the world. Globalization has resulted in not only increased business travel but also paved the path for more recreational travel. In a flat world, several businesses have offices in far-flung corners of the world. Business travel is a must for these companies; business travel often spawns personal travel as well.
This course introduces students to the hospitality and tourism industry, including hotel and restaurant management, cruise ships, spas, resorts, theme parks, and other areas.
