Philosophy

The Hotel Management School Maastricht wants to offer its students a practical training environment that focuses on experimentation and the future. This is why Château Bethlehem has been converted into an innovative Teaching Hotel with 26 rooms, various meeting rooms, a restaurant and a bar. In fact, the Teaching Hotel Château Bethlehem is a real hotel. A hotel where guests are welcome and where students can play the roles of host, hostess and manager.

Teaching Hotel with students

An inspiring environment

The curriculum of the hotel school is increasingly innovative. With the addition of a real hotel environment, practical education is also becoming state-of-the-art. This is enabling the Hotel School to achieve the optimum balance between theory and practice. And offer its students a challenging and varied programme.

Over the years, the hospitality industry has undergone many changes. The Hotel School anticipates these. We regard it as essential to create an environment that stimulates and inspires teachers, and particularly students. This environment allows us to integrate the latest trends and developments in the education programme. It also stimulates the students to search for possible innovations. Before their career has even started, they will get to grips with design-focused, conceptual thinking. The Hotel School firmly believes that the ability to handle change and innovation is an essential management skill.

A unique place to learn

Through the concept of ‘learning on the job’, students acquire practical experience in the Teaching Hotel. In the first six months of their first year, they put the theories that they have learned into practice, but also they carry out supervisory tasks. Finally a select group of students will have an internship in the Teaching Hotel. They will carry out the job of supervisor/manager during a practical or management traineeship.
