Program description

SHMS Online Master in International Hospitality Management

SHMS’s Postgraduate Diploma in International Hospitality & Design Management has been designed to provide students with a broad understanding of the international hospitality and an introduction to the concepts of hotel design. The programme has two main areas of focus, hospitality management and design. Courses in hospitality management focus on the daily operations within a hotel or concierge service and the decision-making processes that lead to effective management. Design management includes elements of web design, interior design and, facilities design and management, encouraging students to consider the combination of function and style.

The course is particularly useful for those who have already obtained a university level qualification within another discipline and intend to enter the hospitality industry. It is equally relevant for those who have significant industry experience and need an internationally recognised qualification to advance to the next level of their career.
