    Postgraduate Diploma
    in International Hospitality Management

The fast-track TO a career in hospitality

You will be immersed in the world of hospitality from day one of the postgraduate diploma's intensive program, designed for career changers - students who have a degree and/or professional experience in another field, but who need to develop skills to manage hotel, restaurant and hospitality related businesses.

The postgraduate diploma offers an intensive curriculum of hotel management courses and business administration courses for hospitality organizations.

It features a business field trip to Dubai and a six-month professional internship. If you do not have a background in hospitality, you will enter the two-week Hospitality Immersion Program (in Switzerland and Spain only). Upon successful completion of this Postgraduate Diploma, you may continue your studies for one semester in Switzerland to qualify for the MBA.

The Postgraduate Diploma can be studied in Switzerland, Spain or China. The curriculum in Switzerland and Spain is different to the curriculum in China.
