The four-year bachelor Hotel Management offers you a challenging programme. In the first year you will get familiar with the hotel industry. You will follow two modern foreign languages and courses such as marketing, financial management and statistics. This knowledge will be further explored in the second year.

Hotel Management and Change Management dominate the third year. In this phase you need to show that you can also function on a strategic level. You also choose a specific tracks in which you specialize in the last year and a half of the programme.


The bachelor hotel management offers practically oriented education. We work a lot with keynote speakers. These are mainly alumni who have spread out all over the world. They will gladly tell you about the most recent developments within their field.

The projects during the study are not fictional but real. In the third year you will work out a realistic business case for an existing hotel. In the final year you will get a consultancy assignment for an external client. As a team, you will investigate and solve a complex management problem. You will finish the assignment with a presentation to the client.


In the first year of the bachelor hotel management you will get a practical training at the Teaching Hotel. In the second year you will do a five-month internship abroad. The last five months of the fourth year are reserved for a management internship in The Netherlands or any other country.

The management internship is the perfect preparation for your first real job. It is not uncommon for a trainee to be offered a contract afterwards. It is therefore important to choose a suitable internship. Depending on your chosen track, this will be a hotel or another hospitality-related organization.


You can participate in an international exchange programme in your third year. This is especially interesting for those who want to gain more international experience. The hotel school works together with universities in Europe, South Africa, Russia, China and Chile.
