You’ll get practically oriented education. We work a lot with keynote speakers. These are mainly alumni who have spread out all over the world. They will gladly tell you about the most recent developments within their field. The projects during the study are not fictional but real. In the third year you will work out a realistic business case for an existing hotel. In the final year you will get a consultancy assignment for an external client. As a team, you will investigate and solve a complex management problem. You will finish the assignment with a presentation to the client.

The management internship is the perfect preparation for your first real job. It is not uncommon for a trainee to be offered a contract afterwards. It is therefore important to choose a suitable internship. Depending on your chosen track, this will be a hotel or another hospitality-related organization.
You can participate in an international exchange programme in your third year. This is especially interesting for those who want to gain more international experience. The hotel school works together with universities in Europe, South Africa, Russia, China and Chile.
