“I’m doing Hospitality,” more and more of your friends are saying. You’re puzzled, wondering what does that word even mean. Are they learning to run a hotel? A hospital in a hotel? That sounds like some pretty good pay.

Well, you’re not completely off the mark there, so let us answer that for you!
