MSc in Hospitality and Tourism Management

New postgraduate programme in Hospitality and Tourism Management
under the auspices of the Greek Tourism Confederation (SETE)

The first day of classes of the new programme of study MSc Hospitality and Tourism Management, offered this year by the International Hellenic University, commenced on Monday 9 November 2015.

The two-year programme is under the auspices of the Greek Tourism Confederation (SETE) and is supported by many important stakeholders and companies from all over Greece. The programme started in November 2015 with its first intake of 36 postgraduate students. Academics from Greece, England, Switzerland, and other countries will be teaching the courses.

The purpose of the strategic partnership with the Greek Tourism Confederation (SETE) and the other major tourism stakeholders is to make the most of their expertise and experience while at the same time to connect the university with the tourism industry through: joint educational and training initiatives for students and executives, consulting and dissertation projects and the possibility of offering jobs to graduates of the MSc Hospitality and Tourism Management who demonstrate outstanding academic performance.

The postgraduate programme MSc in Hospitality and Tourism Management provides students with a broad and comprehensive set of knowledge and skills aiming at the effective management of tourist establishments. It aims at acquiring knowledge in order to address the effective decision-making and critical evaluation of issues related to management in the broader tourism sector, while providing practical guidance regarding administrative and strategic issues in the rapidly evolving industry both nationally and internationally. The programme also aims at providing the knowledge required to formulate strategy for tourism businesses and organisations with a focus on environmental legislation governing this sector and which in recent years is becoming vital.

If hospitality means to turn strangers into friends, then you earned a friend,” declared Dr Marc Stierand, Assistant Professor from the Swiss Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne, during the first class of the course. Dr Marc Stierand is the first of a series of academics from abroad who will teach on the MSc. “I can teach you Hospitality Management but you showed me what hospitality really is. Thank you for this valuable experience”.

The International Hellenic University in order to engage in a dialogue with society has formed partnerships with major tourism operators (see in detail here) in order to link the business community with students who will be entering the job market.
