The Professional Promotion Hospitality Section (PPHS) was established in 1990 by the bold vision of the Pontifical Institute Notre Dame of Jerusalem Center in collaboration with Bethlehem University’s Institute of Hotel Management and the Dublin Institute of Technology. The mission of PPHS is to provide training and education to young Palestinians who have completed their high school education and wish to continue their studies to improve their present working conditions.
The school focuses on training its students to succeed in the hospitality management, catering and food service industry. The school also offers a variety of other specializations focused in the travel and tourism industry.
