The Department of Hotel, Restaurant and Institution Management
BS Hotel, Restaurant and Institution Management
The BS Hotel, Restaurant and Institution Management program (formerly known as BSHRA) was instituted in 1970 as a joint program with the College of Business Administration (CBA). The University of the Philippines pioneered this program to fill managerial and supervising requirements of what was then a budding hotel and restaurant industry. Presently, the program is being administered solely by the CHE as approved during the 72nd meeting of the University Council on December 6, 2000. The program integrates general education courses, functional management courses as well as the technical courses for the management of hotels, restaurants and other related institutions. The curriculum seeks to develop value-laden, competent and productive leaders and entrepreneurs in the food service and lodging industry.
