Master in International Hotel Management

Today, the hospitality and tourism industry is cosmopolitan and globalized, and therefore scouts for trained and qualified personnel.

Whichever sector the student previously studied, the student encounters field training and operational management in hospitality and tourism. They conclude the year with an internship carried out in the same country itself.

Hospitality Management Year 4
The student acquires bit by bit the analytical and decision making methods of the management practice, and concludes the year with an internship in the business.

Hospitality Management Year 5
For each subject studied, the student first reviews the broad strategic rules, and then studies a specific case of its application in large companies.

International Hospitality Internships
