Program description

Master of Arts in International Hotel Business Management

The Master of Arts (awarded by University of Derby, U.K.) is an intensive Program delivered over an 18-week period in blocks of 9 weeks, before students embark on a mandatory work placement. During their studies, they learn the theory and apply practical knowledge, ensuring their future in the multifaceted nature of the hospitality industry is covered.

With the only Master’s Program based at our Caux Campus, graduates will be able to accelerate their business acumen by applying their newly acquired skills in managing the ever-growing business of hotel operations.

The capstone module directs students to draw on all their areas of study throughout the Program, as they bring together their competencies when they present their final applied management project for launching their own hotel.

As part of this Program, students will be required to complete a 4-6 month industry internship, which allows for the practical application of their education as well as the perfect opportunity to grow their professional network.
Graduates of this Program receive both Master of Arts in International Hotel Business Management awarded by University of Derby, U.K and Master of International Business in Hotel Management awarded by Swiss Hotel Management School.
