Internationalization of our education is becoming increasingly important in a globalizing world with countless international companies and partnerships. In addition, we like to nurture the ‘global mind’ of our students with the widest possible mix of nationalities and backgrounds. Therefore, the foundation initially focuses on scholarships for international students.
The hospitality industry has been largely affected by the crisis. As an institute, we notice that young talent is looking at our sector with a critical and different view. We would like to continue to play a leading role in training young and ambitious talents for an international hospitality industry. The sector needs these well-trained people to revitalize, change and grow.
However, the fund also offers a solution for realizing future development and internationalization plans for the Hotel Management School Maastricht. In our aim to be able to offer small-scale, international education on our beautiful campus at a level that can compete with other leading international hotel schools, we develop activities that cannot be paid for from the regular budget. In addition to government financing, support from the foundation has become necessary.
For the record: all donations to the HMSM Foundation will go to projects of the Hotel Management School Maastricht.
