This is a top-up programme intended for graduates of Academy Profession Degree Programmes in Marketing Management or Service, Hospitality and Tourism Management. The top-up programme earns you a bachelor’s degree in International Hospitality Mangement with only 1½ years of additional study.

The programme will provide you with the competences to work in day-to-day operations, development, administration and management in an international work environment in the hospitality industry. A specialisation period will allow you to focus more deeply on either tourism, the hotel and restaurant industry or experience economy.

You will learn about management, strategy, economics, cultural awareness and customer relations. You will be provided with the tools to develop new markets and concepts, achieve an understanding of a company’s strategic challenges as well as the ability to handle the practical implementation and operation of a company strategy.

For Danish students, the first semester will be taught in Danish, before the programme continues taught fully in English from the second semester. For international students, all semesters are fully taught in English.

This means that Danish and international students study together from the second semester, giving you valuable intercultural competences as well as an international network.

As a Bachelor of International Hospitality Management, you may find employment as resort manager, marketing coordinator, destination manager, or sales manager etc.
