Hallam partnership with hotel chain shortlisted for national award

2nd January 2018

Sheffield Hallam University's unique partnership with Grand Heritage Hotels has been shortlisted for a national award.

The collaboration between the hotel group and the University's Business School began in February this year. The unique 'live-learn-earn' internship programme involves International Hospitality Management and International Hotel and Resort Management students spending a semester-long placement at the historic Stanley Hotel in Colorado. As part of the experience, students study and live at the hotel, which inspired horror novelist Stephen King to write The Shining, as well as working in various positions giving them a chance meet and engage with guests and work on a number of projects. The partnership has been shortlisted in the National Undergraduate Employability Awards 2018 in the Best Collaboration between a University and Employer category. Dr Emma Martin, head of department for Service Sector Management in Sheffield Business School, said: "We're delighted this innovative partnership has been shortlisted for an NUE Award. "The partnership highlights Sheffield Hallam's ambition to be a university for the real world that is operating on a global stage, just as many of our students will be in their future careers. "For it to be recognised in this way less than a year after launching is truly remarkable and a testament to the staff and students involved in making it a success." The winners will be announced at the Awards ceremony in London in February.
