GIIAC

The Graduates in Industry International Advisory Committee (GIIAC) was formed by ICHM in 2011 to advise on current industry trends and practices in relation to ICHM programs.

All GIIAC members are graduates from ICHM who are carefully selected from the large number of ICHM alumni; this list of members was appointed in April 2016 to take over from the inaugural committee. GIIAC members are selected on the basis of their expertise in international hotel management, professional appointments and their interest in the education of the future workforce. ICHM is committed to having the right mix of relevant skills, knowledge, attributes and expertise among the committee members to ensure it maintains its reputation as Australia’s best hotel and hospitality business school.
