About this course
The Post Graduate Diploma in Hospitality Management Program is designed for mature students who wish to change their direction of studies and enter the exciting field of hospitality management. The first six months are spent in school, learning basic hospitality competencies, partially in a vocational setting, while studying a theory at the same time. This will give the student hands-on training while giving them the newest concepts of management in an academic setting. The second six months are spent in a Swiss hospitality internship environment, either in an entry-level junior position or, depending on local language skills, in a minor supervisory function.
