The theoretical framework of this study was based on the premise that the Dualized Training Program would affect the occupational interest of the students enrolled in Hotel and Restaurant Management in Rizal technological University. The exposure of the students in the said Program wherein they practice what is being learned theoretically in school would help them in strengthening their occupational interest or even opt for another occupational interest that will best suit the skills that they possess after graduation. The study employed both quantitative and qualitative approach. The descriptive research specifically the survey method was used. Qualitative research interview was also administered to the participants. The study employed purposive sampling of 147 students belonging to batch 2011 enrolled last Summer 2014 who were required to engaged in various Dualized Training Program at Astoria Culinary and Training Institute  and  Bistro Academy from 2011-2014.  A researcher-made questionnaire was used to gather data which were treated statistically using percentage, frequency distribution and t-test for correlated dependent samples. Based on the analysis made, male respondents’ occupational interest was to be in Food and Beverage Services before their exposure to the Dualized Training Program, whereas female respondents would rather be in the Front Office Operations. After the Dualized Training Program, both male and female respondents regarded Food and Beverage Services as their occupational interest. There was a significant difference in the occupational interests of respondents before and after the Dualized Training Program.
