About BTHM Program

Bachelor of Tourism and Hospitality Management (BTHM) program under the Faculty of Business and Economics (FBE) at Daffodil International University (DIU) offers the BTHM degree. This program comes under the tertiary sector which is also known as service sector. The primary sector includes agriculture, fisheries, forestries and extraction such as mining; while secondary sector is the same as manufacturing sector.  BTHM program involves provision of services to other businesses as well as final consumers. Services may involve the transportation, distribution and sale of goods from producer to consumer as may happen in wholesaling and retailing or the provision of service for pest control or entertainment. Restaurant industry is an example where goods may be transformed in the process of providing the service. However, the focus is on people, interacting with people, and serving the customer rather than transforming physical goods.
