Program: MBA in Hospitality Management
Duration: One and a half years (2 years: with optional second 6 month industry training period)
Availability: This offer is available to all potential students holding a recognised Bachelor’s degree
Overview The revised MBA program in Hospitality Management is a truly international program, managed by BHMS and awarded by the City University (CityU) of Seattle, USA. Thus, the award is fully subject to CityU quality assurance procedures and policies.
The program comprises 3 stages: the first is an intensive study period of 6 months at the BHMS campus in Lucerne, Switzerland; this is followed by one period of 6 months spent in industry training during which time students should complete 2 project based online courses. In the third stage and final stage, students return to the BHMS campus for a second 6 month study period and completion of all MBA courses. A second industrytraining period may be taken on completion of this third stage but is entirely optional.
Students learn from a dedicated faculty, who in addition to their academic credentials, bring along know-how and vast experience in the business field. This ensures that what is learnt in class is contemporary and can be applied in a daily business environment in real world situations.
BHMS is a member of the Bénédict Switzerland group of schools, founded in 1928, whose mission is to provide adult education for people with a desire to succeed. Bénédict School is one of Switzerland’s largest private education organizations and is teaching each year more than 15,000 full and part time students.
Aim of the Program An MBA degree combined with vocational skills carries considerable value and prestige with employers worldwide. It can benefit people who are already holding an executive position in management, or who as a next step in their careers, are looking to enter into an executive management position in the hospitality or related service industries. Further, it is an ideal education for degree holders with a non-hospitality background looking to change their careers, or for entrepreneurs looking to obtain the necessary specialized knowledge when contemplating opening their own business.
Students gain an insight into the facets of international hospitality management and food service operations alongside the introductory MBA courses in Business communications and Business Management during the first 3 months of the program. During this time students are also supported in ensuring they meet the CityU English proficiency requirements. The proceeding 3 months of study then focus on the core business skills of marketing, management, project planning and systems to provide students with a balanced managerial skill set, suited to both the hospitality and service sectors, before progressing to their first internship.
During the 2nd stage of the program (industry placement) students undertake two online courses which allow them to select and develop a topic of interest to them and research its applications in their placement workplace. These courses are fully supported with an online tutor. Students should align their project choice with their area of specialisation in Hospitality Management to reflect 6 credits of specialisation at this stage.
In the final, 3rd stage of the program students build on their core managerial knowledge and skill set developed over the last 12 months and focus on financial, human resource and strategic competencies as a capstone to the program. The final academic stage also concludes with 2 further specialisation courses in the hospitality management pathway.
