Faculty & Learning Philosophy

Expert Faculty

We aim to strike the perfect balance between academic teaching and work experience, and between theory and practice. We constantly strive to achieve excellence by recruiting the very best professors from all over the world - many of whom have Master's degrees or PhDs from prestigious universities - as well as executives from top-class hotels. Our faculty members are an inspiration to our students and are skilled at incorporating applied research into their classes. Many of them engage with their students in practical, industry-linked projects, thus forging close ties with the professional world.
