International Hospitality Business

Our MSc in International Hospitality Business will prepare you to lead a high-flying career in the world’s most prestigious international hospitality chains. Offered in Switzerland and London, this program will give you the skills for managing people, operations and business in hotels and hospitality companies. The higher-level management courses in hospitality include finance, marketing, human resources, and revenue management, taught by our industry-experienced faculty members who bring their expertise and best-practice examples to the classroom. The program ends with an internship, providing you with hands-on experience and a chance to practice your new skills in a real work environment.

Five-Star Hospitality Management Training

If you lack a background or experience in hospitality, the Hospitality Immersion Program can teach you the professional standards of hospitality service and how to supervise operations with leading culinary and hospitality professionals. Our four-week optional program covers kitchen, restaurant, pastry, oenology, hospitality economics, and hospitality accounting.

Business Management Skills

In the classroom, you will learn to manage every department and function in a hospitality business and master the tools of the trade in simulated hotel development and revenue management projects with the guidance of experienced faculty members who share their insights and tips from the industry.

Real World Experience

On field trips, you will put your knowledge to the test in real international hospitality businesses. For each project, you will conduct research and analyze data, prepare a presentation, and receive feedback from industry leaders.

Project Management and Specialisation

For the Capstone Project, you will work on developing your critical thinking, research and writing skills to produce high-quality professional work and complete a project that you can proudly share in your portfolio and CV.
