The Emirates Academy of Hospitality Management to offer Masters Programme

The Emirates Academy of Hospitality Management, one of the world’s leading hospitality management schools and part of Jumeirah Group, the Dubai-based luxury hotel group; is pleased to offer a new Master of Science degree in International Hospitality Management - the first of its kind in the GCC region.

Commencing in October 2009, the programme is aimed at the hospitality leaders of the future, building on the foundations laid by undergraduate studies with an emphasis on managerial competence. It will be open to students continuing their education with the Academy as well as external applicants looking to advance their careers into executive, corporate and senior management levels.

The post-graduate curriculum is based on extensive industry and educational research and has been benchmarked against 15 other internationally renowned Masters programs. With senior and executive managers from the hospitality trade contributing to the course design and content, graduates will emerge with highly developed skills and knowledge relevant to the industry.

“The introduction of the Masters programme is demonstrative of the Academy’s commitment to improve and enhance hospitality standards worldwide” affirmed Ron Hilvert, Managing Director of the Emirates Academy of Hospitality Management. “The programme will deliver an important competitive advantage to graduates; something that is increasingly demanded by the hospitality industry.”

The programme can be completed in one year based on a full time study load; the option of a part time program is also available to allow students to combine their studies with employment opportunities.
