An increasingly globalized world has led tourism to become the fastest growing industry in business today. Hospitality Management covers a very wide field with countless, often cross-industry opportunities. Modern companies require academically qualified, visionary leaders to create new business models and understand changes in technology and consumer trends. In addition to the classic hotel sector, it includes the hospitality industry as well as adjacent industries, such as amusement parks, casinos or airlines, and service providers such as hospitality consulting or IT service providers.
Focusing on the development of executive skills and strategic aptitudes, this program explores the theories, practices and frameworks that make up the tourism and hospitality fields, while developing understanding of international and intercultural management needs.
EUII considers both what applicants have achieved in the past and what the evidence suggests they have the potential to achieve in the future. And, in keeping with its mission, admits students from all parts of the globe – creating a student body that mirrors today’s diverse society.
A state-recognized, university master’s degree
The Master in Tourism & Hospitality Management (60 ECTS) is a one-year program, divided into three terms. Courses are nine weeks in length, and students may take as many as three courses each term. Each term comprises four courses (4 ECTS each) and one seminar (2 ECTS). Throughout the year, students are also exposed to real-life case studies, games and business simulations. To graduate, participants must also complete a business plan (6 ECTS). The MBA can be completed in as little as six terms, or fifteen months of full-time study. Students also have the flexibility to enroll for part-time study and take one course per term.
