In your first year of studies, you will learn the fundamentals of modern business practices. Introductory courses in financial management, business administration, human resource management, marketing, economics, and European business law prepare you for advanced subjects and your future career.
UPGRADE YOUR PROFESSIONAL SKILLS
Successful business requires great communication — further courses will enhance your ability to convey your business ideas and research findings in a professional way. You will learn about different forms of business communication, improve your presentation skills and academic writing, and boost your communication abilities. To keep up in the ever-changing business environment, you will learn the key concepts and principles of problem solving, critical thinking, decision making, creativity, and teamwork.
LEARN HOW TO MANAGE A WORLD CLASS HOTEL
The Hotel Management & Operations degree is an extension of the specialization in Hotel Management, which adds two additional semesters where you will learn about the entire structure of the hotel and tourism industry. Courses in Restaurant and Service Management, Culinary Theory and Practice, and Rooms Division Management will provide you with the necessary practical skills and expertise to successfully engage in professional practice. You will also study advanced hotel management, covering topics such as hotel property planning, performance management and how to develop strategic business opportunities.
This program is the perfect choice for high school graduates (A-level degree, Matura, Abitur, or equivalent) who have no practical education in the tourism and hospitality industry prior to entering the program (via apprenticeship, vocational school, associate degrees, etc.).
