Hotel, Restaurant and Tourism Management has four corner-stones of studies: working-life orientation, business management, aesthetics and internationality. They are integrated into all study modules.

Working-life orientation
Studies are firmly linked to working-life in the combination of theory and practice. The working life orientation provides the student with a good and realistic insight into the industry and creates a solid basis for the career path. The research and development methodology will create chances for innovative job opportunities already during the studies. Research & Development and the innovative approach is part of the learning through working-life. It trains the students’ skills to seek and apply information in a critical and analytical manner.

Business management
Students improve their managerial aptitude via studies in management, accounting, marketing and communications. They will learn to understand the economic thinking behind all business operations. The holistic managerial perspective will increase the skills for developing business operations.

Aesthetic nature
The competitive and growth potential within the industry are inter-related with aesthetics and experience. A graduate in hotel, restaurant and tourism management has developed the analytical and practical skills required to create aesthetic, desirable and memorable services, products, communications and circumstances, which differ from those of competitors.

The studies embrace language and culture courses, which contribute to international skills.

Key learning outcomes
The student will develop a solid understanding of customer-oriented and profitable operation within the various sectors of hospitality and tourism management. The student learns how to put skills into practical use to boost business within the hotel, restaurant and tourism industry and other areas.

The studies will provide the student with an extensive professional outlook and logical skills. Bachelor graduates develop careers within the hotel, restaurant and tourism industry in management positions, as entrepreneurs, as specialists or in sales or Research & Development positions ( R & D).
