The School of Applied Technology and Management comprises three academic departments:

  • Business Information Management
  • Computer Technology and Information Systems
  • Tourism and Hotel Management

The Department of Business Information Management (BIM) provides an "Applied Business" education with enriched "Information Management" and "Business Communications" components. BIM courses are designed to prepare innovative, adaptable graduates who have administrative and management skills and a solid grounding in the primary functions of business; who have the ability to use information effectively and to manage information resources and systems strategically; and who have sound teamwork and interpersonal communication abilities and can apply these skills equally to internal and external audiences. A very valuable part of the curriculum is the Industrial Training placement. This gives the student a "real life" business experience and adds a practical perspective to the theoretical studies. Students can specialize in the desired area of the study program through a wide variety of elective courses.

The Computer Technology and Information Systems Department (CTIS) aims to provide a first rate education in the field of computers and information technologies for college and high school graduates who are willing to apply themselves diligently to a computer education and who wish to prepare themselves for the broad range of exciting career opportunities, in this dynamic and rapidly expanding field. The CTIS curriculum is designed to meet the popular and expanding IT industry requirements like mobile application development, networks and web technologies, software engineering, data warehousing, and information storage and management where technical background is not sufficient and needs to be supported by social skills. To accomplish this, CTIS technical courses are complemented by a range of business studies. These include both management and social/communication courses. Main goal is to graduate students who are technically both competent and confident, who are innovative, adaptable, and who have sound teamwork and interpersonal communication skills.

The Department of Tourism and Hotel Management (THM) aims to prepare students for managerial and supervisory positions in hotel, restaurant and travel establishments, encouraging them to establish their own firms in hospitality and travel industries. Hotel and restaurant business, culinary arts and travel industry studies emphasized with management courses are taught theoretically. On-premise training facilities including the Practice Restaurant; fully equipped demonstration kitchen, the small quantity food laboratory, practice kitchen are the practical side of the curriculum. The THM Department also conducts industrial training programs, so that students may complete internships and externships providing real life experience with well known leading international hotel and restaurant chains and multinational travel and tour operators offering a healthy blend of theoretical and applied learning of the 21st century.
