The HOSPA Education and Training Programme (ETP) in Financial Management is the entry route to Associate membership of HOSPA for finance personnel in the industry. The programme provides professional development for hospitality accounting professionals wishing to gain additional skills and the knowledge required to manage hospitality finance divisions, or gain an understanding of the accounting function of a hospitality unit. The three-stage ‘blended learning’ programme, studied over three 6-month periods, provides the flexibility for accounts personnel to fit their learning around their busy working day.
In 2011, HOSPA introduced a hospitality focused ETP in Revenue Management. Written by leading educators in Revenue Management in the hospitality sector, in conjunction with leading industry experts, the course is designed to provide Revenue Managers of the future with the skills and knowledge required to manage their divisions, as well as to provide non-revenue personnel with a detailed knowledge of the function within a hospitality property.
Enrolment for the next intake in March 2016 – for both the Financial Management and Revenue Management programmes – is currently open. Both courses are studied in three separate Stages, each at a cost of £750 (ex VAT). For further information, visit: www.hospa.org/education; or email: firstname.lastname@example.orgBack to News
