About this program

International Hotel Management (BA)

The program comprises two years of full-time study. Each year is divided into three four-month blocks, two of which are spent studying on a University Campus with the remaining block spent on placement in the Marriott Hotel.

Students will therefore spend a total of eight months (two four-month blocks) within a Marriott Hotel, working in a range of departmental areas. Placement during the first year of the degree will have a more operational emphasis; the second year will combine operational duties at a more advanced level together with involvement in hotel administration and management. Students will develop enhanced guest service skills and a critical understanding of the operational requirements associated with different departments in the hotel.

For the remaining sixteen months (four four-month blocks), students will pursue academic study on a University Campus. The modules studied will develop a critical understanding of essential management theory and practice, provide a global context within which hotel organisations operate, and engage students with principles of sustainable business practice. This will provide a theoretical foundation of subject knowledge that can then be applied within a practical context during the placements at the Marriott Hotel.
