Finance & Revenue Management Programmes

Study with us on our flexible, online programmes in

Finance or Revenue Management

The HOSPA Professional Development Programmes provide the skills and knowledge for those hospitality professionals seeking to excel in their careers in hospitality finance or revenue management.  


About the Programmes:

With both introductory and advanced levels available, the modules have been specifically written for the hospitality sector by specialist educators and industry-leaders and reflect the need for learners to be continuing in full-time work whilst studying. Each level of a course is studied over a period of five months.

The programmes utilise both contemporary terminology and professional examples and are assessed through work-based projects, meaning you can apply what you learn directly to the workplace. In addition to the study packs, all learners log into our online learning space with access to subject matter experts.

Each year we celebrate the achievements of our learners at the Annual Awards Ceremony.  Click here to learn more about the 2021 event.


Introducing the Financial Management programme

  • Flexible study options whilst working full time

  • Provides skills and knowledge to manage a hospitality finance department

  • Leads to Associate Certified (Finance) membership of HOSPA on completion

"When we were looking for a Finance Learning Programme we knew instantly that HOSPA was the right fit for Carden Park Hotel. It is an industry recognised programme that not only ensures our employees are gaining the right qualifications and knowledge but one that #teamcarden are also enthusiastic about completing.  The nature of hotel accounting is very different to many industries and we wanted an exciting Finance Learning Programme that reflected this. At Carden Park our ethos is to ‘grow our own’, we ensure that our team has the opportunity to develop within their roles and HOSPA has been a big part of this for our finance and food and beverage teams. The team turnover is very low for which we can partially attribute to them feeling valued and being able to progress by completing appropriate training. The support from HOSPA throughout our learning journey has been fantastic and we will certainly be continuing to grow our team with their programme."
