|MASTER of BUSINESS
in HOTEL AND TOURISM MANAGEMENT
An International Double Degree Program
New academic year starts every July.
Silpakorn University International College, Talingchan
OBJECTIVES OF THE PROGRAM
This program is an industry-driven curriculum, treating students as future hospitality leaders and placing them at the very heart of the learning process.
Teaching methods include problem based learning and hospitality management simulation games, where students are able to test their analytical and decision making abilities in a virtual environment by mirroring realistic business situations.
During the internship, students will be required to perform a Business Improvement Project (BIP) for their host company. This business improvement project provides significant added-value to the learning experience, as students will actively contribute to the host company’s business.
Accompanying students in this ultimate learning experience is a faculty composed of international scholars and hospitality practitioners, who are highly respected in their field.
The newly redesigned MBA offers many new attributes:
The first year consists of 10 courses (30 credits) that cover fundamental topics on tourism business principles and hospitality management. The second year includes an internship/ research project (Business Improvement Project) (6 credits) and 4 courses that deal with business principles at a technical, managerial and strategic level.
While the first semester ensures that graduates will have the breadth of knowledge to work in any area of tourism, the second semester will equip students with the skills and knowledge to pursue a specific track within the hospitality industry. The third semester is designed to expose students to the technical realities of hospitality operations through a 5- month internship or hospitality employment at the first level of management. The fourth semester is designed to accelerate students’ transitions form an intern position to managerial/ entrepreneurial levels, through problem based learning and management simulations for the core courses.
International internship opportunities are available in France, USA, Australia etc.
