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.
 
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.
