A Comprehensive Learning Experience

The double degree program prides itself with a new pedagogy which adapts courses according to students’ needs and provides a balance of theory, strategic analysis and creativity. The hospitality industry requires perfection and excellence and this customizable pedagogy will allow you to develop the specific skillset companies in this industry are looking for. Furthermore each semester features project-based learning to translate theory into a real-life setting.

Acquire the Fundamentals of Management

Non-credit on-line courses allow students with limited formal training in management or with missing elements to be prepared for later applied coursework.  These courses are managed by emlyon business school.

Solid knowledge in marketing, management, operations management, strategy or finance, is key to successfully navigate the variety of business models that make the global hospitality industry so unique. In addition the entrepreneurial and innovation management skills that emlyon business school is known to provide will help you distinguish yourself in the eyes of your future employer. 

Example of courses:
- Introduction to Financial Accounting & Finance
- Economics
- Principles of Marketing
- Corporate Social Responsability (The online course “Corporate Social Responsibility” is mandatory for all emlyon business school students and should be followed as a regular course during semester 1 in Ecully)
