Programme Structure

Our degree programme is unlike other business schools. You don’t just learn the management theories, you apply them. You don’t just learn how to do things; you learn to help others do them better. The practical and theoretical aspects of this unique degree programme are split up into three learning phases. Phase 1 is all about hospitality performance; you learn to do the existing well’. Phase 2 emphasises the tactical application of this knowledge; you improve on the existing. In the final phase you apply your learning and experience strategically; searching for new combinations.

Entrepreneurial Learning
The school is internationally renowned for its innovative learning concept: Entrepreneurial Learning. What does it mean? It means you are responsible for your own learning process. You learn to take initiative, to be proactive and think for yourself. You ‘learn by doing’. Lecturers act as coaches, not teachers; you follow courses based on professional tasks and real life assignments.

Entrepreneurial learning teaches you project management, self-discipline, self-reflection and group working. You develop these skills during every phase of the programme and they are intensified during a 5 day outdoor week in the Belgian Ardennes. By doing various outdoor assignments you learn how to cope with the dynamics of the group and to reflect on yourself and your other team members. These are life-skills; you take them with you and apply them wherever and whatever you do after graduation.
