Practical Experience

A successful manager needs to be able to understand the role of every employee within an organisation; a great way to gain this knowledge is through internship experience. Internship periods of four to six months are an integral part of the academic programme.

Internships offer a unique opportunity to enhance both practical and language skills, which are highly valued in the hospitality industry.
