The Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne, the Conrad N. Hilton College (CNHC) at the University of Houston and the School of Hotel and Tourism Management (SHTM) at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University are joining forces to offer an exceptional Master's program in Global Hospitality Management. The three schools have signed a letter of intent and are now finalizing program details.
The program aims to shape international hospitality managers with a global awareness derived from first-hand local business knowledge. The 18-month experience will enable high potential students to become industry leaders who can “think globally and act locally”.
A Consecutive Master's delivered on 3 continents
Students enrolled in this unique Master's program will split their time between three continents over three consecutive semesters. They will gain experience in specific hospitality-related issues, while immersed in very different cultures and business environments. Upon completion of the program, graduates will receive a Master of Science in Global Hospitality Business from the university in which they are enrolled, as well as a certificate from each of the two partner universities.
Timeline and details
The program is scheduled to begin in September 2015 with a semester at the Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne, followed by two further semesters in Hong Kong and Houston. Details are currently being finalized.
