Over 100 graduates from University of Galway’s Shannon College of Hotel Management received their degrees this month. The graduates hailed from 10 countries including Ireland, India, China, Malaysia, South Korea, Seychelles and Germany.

Speaking at the graduation Mr. Adrian Sylver, Head of College said, “The industry is rebounding after a turbulent covid-19 period. Central to this resurgence is people. You graduate today with a degree in International Hotel Management, your degree has equipped you with skills highly sought in the industry. You have mastered modules in all the key business disciplines and those specific to the hospitality industry. Additionally in Shannon we have strived to hone your management and interpersonal skills. The Shannon qualification goes beyond the academic studies, lifelong skills are developed that will make you stand out in the industry. Tourism, Ireland's largest indigenous sector and biggest regional employer, is on a strong recovery trajectory after the difficulties of the pandemic”.

Class patron Nicky Logue, General Manager of the Intercontinental Hotel in Dublin in his address stated that “The hospitality industry is one of the most exciting and rewarding industries in the world. Despite the challenges of Covid the industry has rebounded to pre-Covid levels”.

Scholarships to the value of €25,000 were awarded to graduates for their practical, academic and personal achievements.
