Program description

Working in hospitality can be demanding: it’s often not a typical 9-5 desk job, but a seven days a week, 365 days a year effort, with peaks and flows between seasons and times of year. But that’s a big part of what makes a career in hospitality management so interesting – there are constant challenges and new opportunities to improve, and no two days are the same.

In this online Bachelor’s degree programme in Hospitality Management, you’ll learn about business fundamentals and how they apply specifically to the hospitality sector. Learn how to plan a budget, organise and optimise workflows and develop your skills as a specialist. Upon graduation, you can use your skills successfully in many different elements of the hospitality and guest service world, from hotels and restaurants to casinos, cruise lines or event agencies.
