The rising cost of schooling, potential labor market unpredictability and employment demands have made it necessary for a significant number of students to find jobs and opt for further education in order to fit into the job market. The purpose of the study was to assess the conflict between work and studies of students at Takoradi Technical University's Department of Hospitality Management. The research was conducted using quantitative research approach with a sample size of 60. Probability sampling technique was the sampling technique employed in the analysis. Questionnaire was the tool used for the collection of the data and information. From the study it was identified that most students work to earn money, obtain work experience and skills in order to fulfill their academic career as well as financial responsibility that their parents and guardians cannot completely support. Therefore, the study suggested that student employees strive to negotiate with their supervisors and employers in order to reduce their workload to the level that could allow them to be more successful at work, and also to perform better at school.
