A hotel management degree is also completely different from BBA - Bachelor in business administration as a BBA degree primarily concentrates on business management & startups.


Business management degrees are never sufficient as one needs to obtain a master degree after graduation for career evolution. while The fundamental needs of human beings are food, beverage and shelter so there will always be demand for hospitality workers. Hence Hotel management degree will be a more preferable choice than other business management/administration degrees. 

Hotel management degrees open up incredible opportunities with a promising international career. It completely makes a personality and will make a person independent. A hotel management degree is also more job oriented.
