“When I entered in my classroom, I saw different nationalities from all around. Rather than going and living in a different culture, I got everything in a single room.”
“My teachers, they are always there for me. In many steps, I was afraid, because I was new here and I didn’t know anything about the culture, but they guided me a lot.”
Nadia Khan, student from Pakistan that studied in Master’s in Hospitality Management

Therefore, the curriculum is designed to provide students with the necessary knowledge -both theoretical and practical- and to ensure their professional development as future directors/managers. The theoretical section covers all major hotel departments or divisions which enables students to have a thorough knowledge of the daily activity of a world- class hospitality establishment.
The practical section or internship comprises 500 hours and is developed with the collaboration of well-established hotels and hotel chains.
