Western Community College, a designated private post-secondary institution in B.C., is pleased to announce that the college has recently been granted consent by the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Training to offer a Bachelor of Hospitality Management (BHM) degree program.
Our mission has always been to provide access to higher education opportunities that will enable our graduates to develop the knowledge and skills required to achieve their professional goals, while meeting the needs of their community, industry, and the province. In the last 10 years more than 7000 students have graduated from our outcome-based career programs with more than 97% finding employment in their career of choice.
We believe that this new program, designed to meet the needs of one of the fastest growing industries in the province, will complement our existing program offerings.

"I am pleased to announce that Western Community College will be offering a Bachelor of Hospitality Management degree in early 2022. This journey started many years ago with my parents who were committed educators in their own right. I saw the positive impact that a post-secondary education could have on any individual. It was for this reason we established Western Community College. With the hard work and dedication of college staff we are now at a new milestone in our continuing journey, one in which we will be able to better serve our students by providing additional educational opportunities and professional futures. We believe that our degree program will be able to provide our hospitality and tourism industry partners with highly qualified graduates in one of the fastest growing industries in the province. Our journey continues."
