Bachelor in International Hotel Management
Today, the hospitality and tourism industry is cosmopolitan and globalized, and therefore scouts for trained and qualified personnel.
The Bachelor’s Degree in Hotel Management programme's objective is to train students for operational and administrative management positions. The programme combines cutting edge management science with traditional know-how in international hotel and restaurant management. Students are expected to participate actively in every phase of this highly internationalized and multicultural academic program, and course work is reinforced through immediate application of knowledge in practical settings.
Consisting of a fixed curriculum of required courses, students alternate course work with practical situations in which they have the opportunity to apply and test what they have learnt in real hotels and restaurants. In their last year, students increase their academic classes and practical periods are mainly in administrative departments such as marketing, PR, Communication, Cost control, Events...

Hospitality Management Year 2
While continuing to enhance theoretical knowledge, students gradually gain operational/ managerial experience: in real situations, they manage 1st year students, while being guided by 3rd year students. Students gain self confidence and do an internship in a foreign country according to their choice and professional objectives.
