THINKING OUT OF THE BOX

EDUCATING THE FUTURE OF OUR INDUSTRY

The hospitality industry continues to provide fertile ground for aspiring leaders, especially in the Middle East. The 2019 Hospitality News ME Careers & Education report looks at the trends taking place throughout the industry and the shifts that are truly making an impact. According to the Pwc Workforce of the Future report, “the Middle East is broadly in line with global trends, but in terms of how ready businesses are for change, we lag behind the rest of the world, and that puts us at greater risk.” To address these challenges, schools and educational institutions are updating curriculums and making the changes that will shape the new graduate. We also spoke to the top hospitality universities in the world and their only Middle Eastern affiliates – all located in Lebanon – to find out what’s in store for the future of hospitality in the Middle East.
