Program description

Study Hotel Management in Maastricht

Would you like to study hotel management in an inspiring, international environment where innovation comes first? You can at Hotel Management School Maastricht. Here, you’ll learn from professionals, live on a student campus and hone your skills in a real hotel.

Varied modules

At Hotel Management School Maastricht, you’ll be trained to be a manager or entrepreneur in the hospitality industry. The four-year bachelor program consists of varied theory and practical modules and two internships. Additionally, you will choose to enrol in two minors (either inside or outside the faculty), a pre-master or an international exchange program.

Close to the profession

You will certainly not spend all your time attending lectures. Apart from lectures from teachers and experts in the field, you will also be attending skills training courses, workshops and taking part in excursions to see the industry in practice. Teamwork plays a major role. In the workshops, you’ll be working in a group of students on practical problems or projects.

Teaching hotel in a castle

And what’s more, you’ll be exposed to the real-life environment of Teaching Hotel Château Bethlehem. This is a training environment unique in the Netherlands, including twenty-six guestrooms, a restaurant, a bar and various meeting rooms. The hotel has received a lot of attention in the international media, not least for its unconventional room designs by Dutch designers.


First year students enjoy a single room in one of our dormitories on campus. The campus is situated in a park like setting and houses a tight knit community in which students will make friends for life. Furthermore we have hospitality assistants available 24/7 to assist students wherever possible.

The campus is only a 10-min bike ride away from the vibrant city centre of Maastricht. Maastricht is considered the heart of hospitality in the Netherlands and has a very international (student) community. 

Interested? Come and visit one of our Open days or like our Facebook page to stay up to date on what study and life on the HMSM campus is like! Alternatively, always feel free to get in touch with us.
