Having worked in the Travel and Tourism industry before moving to Hospitality, I accumulated over 16 years of experience.

I started teaching with Mont Rose College in 2011, becoming the Programme Manager for the Hospitality department later on.

Since joining Mont Rose College as a Hospitality Lecturer, I gained extensive experience in the UK’s higher education teaching and learning frameworks. I had the chance to complete an assessor course, in addition to an internal quality assurance course, which helped me become an Internal Verifier and take additional responsibilities beyond teaching.

Dr Michael Palkowski
My current research interests are located within the subfield of “critical hospitality studies,” a relatively new and vibrant area of analysis. This work moves Hospitality beyond the managerial and business world’s confines and considers Hospitality as a ‘social lens.’ I am currently working on publishing work from my Ph.D., which expanded the ‘commercial home’ concept in the hospitality and tourism literature.

Being a former student of the College, I have always found the college environment welcoming, encouraging, and motivating all to be the best that they can be; the same is still true working at Mont Rose College. I am a new lecturer, and so far, I have gained so much more skills, additional knowledge, and experience needed in working in a diverse professional environment. In my role as a Hospitality Lecturer, I strive continuously to plan and deliver sessions to suit all students’ learning styles and preferences whilst providing guidance and support whenever needed.
