Corporate / Management training is in high demand, as it allows graduates to quickly access managerial positions. Trainees typically work for 12 up to 24 months, either rotating through the various departments of a hotel before choosing a specific department or directly training in a specific department (generally Food & Beverage, Rooms Division or Revenue Management).
