BU student, Cara McElroy, a Level I student on BA(Hons) Hospitality Management, was one of the winners of the HOSPA 'Career Investment Development Scholarships'.
She was nominated by her Savoy Mentor, Howard Field (and her 'academic' application was supported by myself) and she went on to attend the international conference.
The winners of the 2011 'Career Investment Development Scholarships' of HOSPA – the new name for BAHA, the UK's leading educational organisation for hospitality professionals involved in financial management, revenue management and IT – were announced last week at HOSPA's Annual Conference: HOSPACE 2011, held on Thursday 24 November at the Sofitel Hotel, London Heathrow at Terminal 5.
For the first time, the awards were sponsored by HOSPA's strategic partner – Texas- based Hospitality Financial and Technology Professionals (HFTP) and split into two categories. The first was for outstanding young hospitality industry employees, under 30 years of age, in finance, revenue management or IT; and the second was for UK University and College students who have excelled in their current full-time undergraduate hospitality-related studies.
All the winners won the opportunity to learn from, be noticed and publicly recognised at last week's prestigious annual HOSPACE 2011 (formerly known as the BAHA Annual conference and IT Exhibition). In addition, they attended the HOSPACE 2011 Gala Dinner and will be profiled in HOSPA's monthly magazine 'The Overview'.
