Programme profile


The BBA in International Hotel Management prepares students to enter the world of hospitality. It combines sound theory and craft based learning (practical classes) with professional internships in the industry. In the last year, students take a variety of courses for business management, general education courses as elective subjects, and specific courses for their specialization track. Additionally, students take a wide variety of courses for the general business management practices in hospitality. The programme comprises seven semesters of which five are academic semesters and two are internship semesters.

The final year of study develops strategic and management skills that are both relevant to the industrial setting in which students are destined to work and are a prerequisite for possible graduate studies at a later date.
