Postgraduate Diploma: An overview
What you will learn
The postgraduate programme is ideal for students with an undergraduate degree outside of the hospitality field looking to change careers or use it as a pathway in joining a Master’s programme in hospitality. The Postgraduate Diploma programme has been designed in such a way that, upon successful completion, students may progress directly to Master’s Programmes at the Leysin campus, namely the MIB Master in International Business in Hotel, Resort, and Wellness Management or the Master of Science in International Hospitality Management. Students who complete the Hotel Operations pathway benefit from a substantial number of weekly real-life, on-the-job experiences in the many outlets and simulation situations on campus. Practice plus theory are the key components of learning. The Hotel and Events Management pathway appeals to those seeking a more theory-driven approach. They typically already have some work experience in the field while lacking the pertinent undergraduate degree. Sharing the same core and support modules with their Operations colleagues, the focus of the pathway is on Events organisation, with a social and MICE event as the highlight of the semester.
