GIIAC

The Graduates in Industry International Advisory Committee (GIIAC) was originally 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 current list of members was formed in January 2021 and is the third advisory group to be appointed. 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.
