Welcome at HTH

Enter the doors of Hotelschool The Hague, and you enter one of the world’s most special universities.

We are proud of the fact that Hotelschool The Hague is one of the last independent single sector Universities of Applied Sciences in The Netherlands. Hotelschool The Hague was founded and funded in 1929 by the hospitality industry to create a central place where industry partners could gain and share new insight, skills and knowledge. Since its foundation, the Hotelschool has become an international school specialised in hospitality management offering a 4-year Bachelor’s degree in Hotel and Hospitality Management. This degree course is also available as the accelerated International Fast Track programme. 

Since the foundation more than 85 years ago the hotel school has become bigger, more internationally oriented and has professionalised immensely. But the original fundamentals stayed the same, like the dedicated focus on hospitality and the strong connection with the industry. Also the “core business” of the hotel school stayed the same; a centre where hospitality knowledge and skills are bundled, developed, researched, shared and transferred as realistic as possible in order to prepare young hospitality leadership talents for a successful career in the business. Hotelschool The Hague, at the heart of Hospitality.

There is more to Hotelschool The Hague than meets the eye. You are welcome in our Hotels & Restaurants in The Hague and Amsterdam to experience our passion for hospitality.

We are also home to one of the leading hospitality Research Centres where we conduct research into innovations in the hospitality industry. Our Hospitality Consultancy division advises and trains hospitality business professionals, either in company or at our annual summer schools. The results from both divisions are quickly assimilated in our educational programmes so that our students learn from state of the art hospitality business cases; a continual programme of curriculum improvement.

Our Values

Following a year of researching and consulting with our current students, faculty and management we recently introduced Hotelschool The Hague's new Values. It is a values-based ethical code, created by us for us. This means our values will be heart-felt not just head-stored, accentuating our identity and culture, our mission and vision, and not the least, our passion for the industry which needs leaders not only of high competence but also of excellent character. Our Values appeal to the individual's personal responsibility and moral competency, calling for all those in our community to make sound moral decisions based on values we can all identify with.

To support the Values we have created a Manifesto for our students, faculty and management providing us all with a north star for our actions and behaviours. 
Our values are represented by the letters in HOSPITALITY:

H - We are Honest
O- We are Open
S - We are Sustainable
P - We are Professional
I - We are Integrity-Driven
T - We are Transparent 
A - We are Ambassadors
L - We are Loyal
I - We are International
T - We are Trustworthy
Y - We are Yes-Minded

Board of Directors

The members of the Board of Directors are appointed for an indefinite period. The Board of Trustees of Hotelschool The Hague attaches great importance to the continuity of management and for this reason has not adopted the provision in the Branchecode Governance (sector code of governance) that states that members are, in principle, appointed for a period of four years. The members of the Board of Directors are employed under permanent employment contracts.

The members of the Board of Directors are: Susanne Stolte (President) and Regine von Stieglitz (Director of Operations).

Susanne Stolte, President Board of Directors

"Welcome to Hotelschool The Hague. Established in 1929, and ranked amongst the Top 5 Hotelschools worldwide, today we are home to more than 2400 ambitious hospitality students from all over the world who have come to The Netherlands to study Hospitality Management at one of our two campuses in either The Hague or Amsterdam.

Our commitment to nurturing the next generation of hospitality talent is achieved through our personal approach and the close knit community we create between students, faculty and staff.  This commitment to the individual can be felt throughout the Institute.

I very much value being part of this proud community.  The connection with students, faculty and staff and  their passion and commitment to the quality and legacy of our University is inspiring.  The optimistic, ambitious students, our international faculty and staff and our shared passion for hospitality creates an environment where the exchange of knowledge, development of leadership and personal excellence flourishes. 

We are a committed learning organisation, we will never rest contented with who we are but rather challenge ourselves with who we can become.  We are dedicated to continuous evolution through self-evaluation, personal mastery and  team learning. Confident and with a shared vision we are developing the next generation of professional, hospitable, innovative and socially committed Leaders for the 21st century."
