Shahid Rafiq – Room Sales Specialist, Marriott Worldwide

Shahid Rafiq

Course studied: Hospitality Management

I was the first ever ICM student in Pakistan, and have completed the ICM Advanced Diploma in Hospitality Management.

I am currently working in London as a Room Sales Specialist within a dedicated sales team for the Marriott Worldwide, a leading hotel company.

Along with my ICM qualification, I also have a degree in English Literature from Pakistan and am currently studying for an MBA at England’s Anglia Ruskin University. I believe that ICM gave me the necessary educational foundation and qualification to enable me to adapt quickly to the UK’s student and professional world.

I am delighted to see the growth of ICM in Pakistan and feel honoured to have witnessed the launch of the Institute in the country in the 1980s. I strongly believe that the progression of ICM in Pakistan will help students with both local recognition and their employment prospects.
