Graduate  Testimonial

Stephanie Johnson

On entering the Hospitality and Resort Management Diploma program I was unsure of where I saw myself ending up. This course helped me discover the path that I am now on.

Before CTC I was in the Business Diploma program at Kwantlen College. After two semesters I discovered that it was not the right choice. What attracted me to CTC were the smaller class sizes, more one-on-one teaching and the opportunities after graduation.

All of the staff are knowledgeable about the industry, all having worked in the industy, and are able to bring real experience into the classroom. My professor, David Butterton, made the course more interesting and relevant by relating the modules to real industry experiences. We went on work experience field trips to explore the different departments of hotels and resorts. This hands on learning made the material we were studying an actuality rather than just theory.

During the program I decided to enroll into the International Work Abroad program, which I highly recommend. I am now working for a 4 star hotel chain in the UK. Completing this program gave me the opportunity to travel and gain international experience in the hospitality industry. Without CTC I would never have imagined being where I am today.

Thanks for everything,

Stephanie Johnson
