International College of Management, Sydney (ICMS) has been ranked number one in Australia in a survey that examined the event management and hospitality management sector.
The 2017 survey, commissioned by ICMS and undertaken by the Kantar Group (Kantar Millward Brown), a world leading research, data and insights company, ranked ICMS number one in Australia for Event Management and Hospitality Management – based on graduate employability.
The survey asked leading industry brands** to rank the employability of graduates from Australian higher education Institutions offering Event Management or Hospitality Management. ICMS came out on top with 89% of those surveyed seriously considering ICMS when hiring an Event Management or Hospitality Management graduate.
This means that that ICMS students can be confident of finding employment after graduation.
“In today’s current economic climate, we find the results of this survey are an enormous credit to our institution,” ICMS Deputy Vice Chancellor, Professor Chris Auld said.
“We are extremely proud of the calibre of students passing through ICMS, all of whom are put through a rigorous academic program, supported by exceptional staff. The key, though, is that it is this strong theoretical training combined with our emphasis on industry training that has led to us being recognised as number one in career preparation for our students, and graduating quality candidates who will add value to any company in which they are employed.”
ICMS has relationships with leading industry brands and work integrated learning is a part of every degree and course offered. This means that ICMS students are already experienced in their relevant fields before they graduate.
The survey also indicated that the ICMS Bachelor of Event Management and Bachelor of Hospitality Management programs ranked number one for “offering a professional learning environment for students (83%), providing the most professional students (83%) and creating work ready students (85%)”.
“The Kantar Group survey supports our view that ICMS hospitality management and event management graduates are highly professional and competent and we are incredibly proud of this fact,” Professor Auld said.
“This is something we have methodically and consciously worked towards, and it is rewarding to have this outcome recognised. We are proud that our students are the preferred candidates in job interviews in the events and hospitality industries.”
