Master's in Hotel Management
The Master of Science (MSc) in International Hotel Management focuses on developing skills for managing people, operations and business in hotels and hospitality companies. To create a foundation of hotel management skills, the first semester covers hotel operations management. From there, students take 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.
