Three international centres of excellence in hospitality have joined forces to offer a new global qualification for hoteliers.
Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne (EHL), the Conrad N. Hilton College at the University of Houston and the School of Hotel and Tourism Management (SHTM) at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) join forces to offer a new Master’s program in Global Hospitality Business.
Representatives from the three leading universities in hospitality management and industry partners joined a conference yesterday to officially launch the Master of Science HES-SO in Global Hospitality Business.
The first students to benefit from the program will start in September 2015 and spend one semester on each campus across three continents, in Lausanne, Hong Kong and Houston.
The first of its kind, this truly global program will provide students with an extensive understanding of world markets and first-hand experience of local cultures.
Designed in partnership with leaders from the hotel, tourism and service industries, the curriculum offers unparalleled professional immersion thanks to a real-life consulting mandate (Capstone project), professional certifications and business field trips to tourism hubs around the world.
An intense and challenging program set to offer selected students the experience of a lifetime.
