About this program

Master of Science in Hospitality, Entrepreneurship and Innovation

Enhance your entrepreneurial expertise

Designed for career-switchers, aspiring or current entrepreneurs, as well as professionals who own a family business, this Master’s teaches the A-to-Z of entrepreneurship.

  • Develop your business idea
  • Learn from industry experts
  • Transform your entrepreneurial skills
  • Build your network

Two semesters of intensive academic study take you on a journey of innovation and entrepreneurship, from idea to business model and then to market. You will be taught how to scale a business, how to secure funding and how to market your product or service in this digital age.

Your curriculum also includes the opportunity to collaborate with your fellow students to organize an Innovation Fair. Students decide the theme, format and audience, while also organizing the practical aspects of the event. Planning the Innovation Fair presents an opportunity to apply classroom theory through project management, fundraising, cashflow, marketing, sales and logistics. It is the perfect opportunity for you to plug into the Swiss startup ecosystem.

To complete your academic program, you can choose between a Business Research Project or a professional internship, providing you with vital, real-world experience.

Please note that this program is taught both in Bulle and Glion.
