It is also possible that Canada Manpower may sponsor some students. The program will be a fifth specialization in the LCC school of business education's business administration section. While other colleges and tech- nical schools offer similar stu- dies, the LCC course will be unique in its concentration on field work. Arrangements have been made for students to work in most major hotels and motels in the city, and in restaurants and hospitals. "They'll be able to put into practice every afternoon what they learned in class in the explained Dale Key- land, director of the program. To take the program students first have to complete the first year of Ihe business ad- ministration program, which gives the basics in business, ec- onomics, marketing and human relations. In the second year, students in hotel-motel management will take classes most mornings, following them up with actual working experience in local hotels. "That will make us really stay on our said Ed Martyna, one of the instructors in the program. "We'll have to know what's going on in the field well enough so we don't have students coming back next day from their .field work and telling us that our methods were dropped 10 years ago." The hospitality management program is related, but takes two years to complete following the prerequisite first year of business administration. The first year of hospitality management is actually the same as the hotel-motel man- agement year, but further spe- cialization is offered the follow- ing year. "The tourist industry here las a fantastic growth poten- Mr. Heyland said, "and he hotel-motel and hospitality Jusinesses need professionally rained management personnel. "We're providing a training program for people interested in that sort of professional or.- cupation, and offering it at two levels. "From the hotel-motel man- agement year our students will be able to move directly into the business, perhaps working in one of the places they took their field work in, or they can continue on for a second year of specialization in our hospital- ity management program." Following the hotel-motel year, students could also trans- fer to a United States college or university to complete degree work in business administra- tion. The programs have an ad- v i s o r y committee, including Dan Royer, manager of the Park Plaza Motor Hotel; Don Gordon, manager of the Mar- quis Hotel; Bob Barber, man- ager of the Bridge Town House Motel; Mel Fengstad, owner of the El Rancho Motor Hotel; Don LeBaron, administrator of the Greenacres Foundation; Joe Pupp, an LCC business admin- istration student; and Mr. Mar- lyna and Mr. Heyland. The program should be in op- eration for the college spring semester, starting Jan. 5, 1971, jut college officials want peo- ple interested to contact them as soon as possible.
