Saxion University of Applied Sciences is one of the largest institutions of higher education in the Netherlands, with close to 27,000 students (and still growing!). Saxion University has a rich history – its roots can be traced back to the 1875. A merger of two educational institutions, the Hogeschool Enschede and Hogeschool IJselland, in 1998 paved the way for Saxion University in its present form. This merger enabled Saxion to build further on its strong position in Dutch higher education and since then Saxion University has come to be recognised as an important centre of expertise at regional, national and international level.

The hospitality business is currently the fastest-growing industry. As the world continues to globalise and distances seem to become shorter, an increasing number of people are in need of accommodation away from home. The demand for excellent service has become stronger as more and more people gain international travel experience. As a result of this, the industry is facing many challenges such as dynamics in marketing channels, skills shortages, more demanding consumers, emerging markets in tourism, development of new hotel concepts and sustainable entrepreneurship.

The Saxion Hospitality Business School offers 2 bachelor programmes that perfectly address the need for people who are educated in the international hospitality business and who are eager to deal with these industry challenges:

Bachelor in Business Administration (BBA) in Hotel Management
Bachelor in Business Administration (BBA) in Tourism Management
These two programmes share a focus on creating the conditions that enable people to travel, enjoy their leisure time and find suitable accommodation while they are away from home. These conditions should generate a healthy profit for the company while also ensuring that guests and customers are happy and entirely satisfied with the service they receive.
