While you are with us on campus, our Careers Development and Industry Placement (CDIP) team will help you to make the right career choices during your Master’s program and beyond.

And around 200 of the biggest brands in hospitality, luxury, finance and retail come to our campuses every year – in person or virtually – to recruit new talent.

This Master’s program incorporates 6-month professional internship.

You have the opportunity to develop your hotel management expertise in a real-world environment, while building your all-important industry network.
