Rise to the top with a Master's in Hotel Management

This master's in hotel management will prepare you to lead a high-flying career in the world's most prestigious international hospitality chains. It focuses on developing skills for managing people, operations and business in hotels and hospitality companies. To create a foundation of hotel management skills, you will complete a 10-week applied learning course on the Glion campus in Switzerland.  From there, you will advance to higher-level courses in hospitality management including finance, marketing, human resources, and revenue management.  The program ends with an internship for hands-on experience that gives students a chance to practice their new skills in a real-world work environment.
