Master Degree in Innovative Hospitality Management

Zuyd University of Applied Sciences

Master in hospitality: innovation and management

The Master programme in Innovative Hospitality Management is the result of an international collaboration between TSI-Tourism Sant Ignasi affiliated to the ESADE Foundation and a member of Ramon Llull University (Barcelona, Spain) and the Hotel Management School Maastricht (HMSM) of Zuyd University of Applied Sciences (Maastricht, the Netherlands). This one-year master in hospitality programme, held in association with the Oxford Brookes University Business School (Oxford, UK), is directed at graduates with a particular interest in the creative and multicultural aspects of the hospitality industry.

The hospitality industry is the second largest industry in the world. With an annual growth forecast of 5 percent for this decade, the Travel and Tourism sector is one of the world's largest and fastest growing industries. Its importance should not be underestimated. For example, it represents more than 50% of direct investments to developing countries. Emerging markets in general, and China in particular, are mainly responsible for the growth of the travel and tourism industry. Tourism has also become one of the main sources of international contact and cultural exchange.
