Can you please describe the importance of
hospitality studies in the Armenian market?
As a person extremely passionate about the
hotel industry not only in Armenia but

one cannot succeed in the market like
Yerevan where the qualified staff is
highly demanded due to the booming
number of new opening hotels.

related course “Hotel Operations”.
In 2019 the American University of Armenia Extension decided to repeat the “Revenue
Management” course due to its high demand which we did in March this year.

atmosphere of open discussions, real examples, detailed information and sharing of

For the last four and a half years, I am working at Hyatt Place Yerevan and Hyatt Place
Jermuk hotels as Cluster Assistant General Manager. Both properties are beautiful

challenging time to time but I enjoy working in an international world known hotel
company like Hyatt which allows me to develop myself and my colleagues, gain more
expertise and experience every day, overcome challenges
and achieve goals, participate in international trainings
and exhibitions, get to know new people and see
other properties around the world.
