Programme Structure

Developed from the demands of the Industry, the school’s curriculum is designed to challenge you, mixing the classic hospitality disciplines in the form of real life cases and projects. You aren’t just taught management theories, you apply them directly in practice whilst working on your personal development. You combine individual learning with group work. With your team you work on multi-disciplinary case studies which place you directly in the role of manager or consultant. You’ll learn to present your results professionally and effectively.

Our Training and Management Skills are cited by our alumni as being unique and one of our greatest educational assets. Language competency is also an essential hospitality skill: not only is the degree programme 100% English, you choose a second language from a wide range of modern languages.

Read more about the different courses in the Bachelor Course Overview.

The 4-year Bachelor programme is divided into three phases. Phase I (one year) is all about hospitality performance; you learn to do the existing well. Phase II (one and a half years) emphasises the tactical application of this knowledge; you improve on the existing. In the final phase, Phase III (one and a half years), you apply your learning and experience strategically; you add value to the existing, searching for new innovative combinations and entrepreneurial solutions.

Practical and management experience

 

I can say with confidence that Hotelschool The Hague changed my life and personality in the best way possible. I learnt a lot about hospitality and business management in general, but the most
valuable knowledge and experience I gained is based on working and dealing with people who have different cultural backgrounds and behaviours.

Our Quality

Nationale Studenten Enquete (The National Student’s Survey) 2015
De 2015 Nationale Studenten Enquete (The National Student’s Survey) results for all HBO institutions in The Netherlands have been published. Hotelschool The Hague students are very satisfied and rank the school amongst the Top 3 of all universities and HBO institutions in the Netherlands. To the question ‘Would you recommend programme to friends, family or colleagues?’ students graded Hotelschool The Hague 4.57 out of 5. The general atmosphere in the study programme is rated 4.30 out of 5. The study programme in general is graded 4.24 out of 5, which is up from 4.20 last year. 

Hotelschool The Hague is particularly pleased that the theme ‘career preparation’ was rated higher than in 2014, as it is important for Hotelschool The Hague to best prepare students for the industry. The hotel school improved on all three criteria; acquiring skills for professional practice, practical focus of the study and link to professional practice. In the ‘content’ theme Hotelschool The Hague also scored high on the career preparation questions. The match between the study programme and work experience, and the degree to which you can apply what you learn in your work situation, both scored the maximum score, 5 out of 5.
