Vienna/Hong Kong, October 9th, 2023 – Modul University Vienna today announced a cooperation with The Hong Kong Polytechnic University.

The background to the cooperation is a mutual recognition of the studies, which enables students to obtain two degrees in the field of hospitality and tourism in four years. The mobility agreement is scheduled to start in autumn 2024 and will allow participants to study in both Vienna and Hong Kong to experience the diversity of the tourism and hospitality industry in different cultures.
An agreement on the mutual recognition of parts of the other study programme between the School of Hotel and Tourism Management (SHTM) of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University and the School of Tourism and Service Management of the Modul University Vienna makes this offer possible. The duration of study is only four years instead of seven, with two years at the home university and two years at the host university.
