Education and Training Requirements

High School

It's a good idea to begin preparing for a career in hotel management while in high school. Concentrate on a business-oriented curriculum, with classes in finance, accounting, and mathematics. Computer literacy is also important in the hotel industry, for reservations, accounting, and management of supplies. Brush up on your communication skills while in high school. You'll need them when giving direction and supervision to a large and diverse staff. Take English classes and other courses such as speech or drama, which will give you the chance to polish your grammar and speaking skills. A second language, especially Spanish, French, or Japanese, will be very helpful to you in the future.
