Tripartite hospitality programme wins international recognition
The Master of Science in Global Hospitality Business (MGH) programme, offered jointly by PolyU’s School of Hotel and Tourism Management (SHTM), École hôtelière de Lausanne and Conrad N. Hilton College of Hotel and Restaurant Management at the University of Houston, has won the McCool Breakthrough Award 2020. The accolade is awarded by the International Council of Hotel, Restaurant, and Institutional Education, the world’s largest organisation of hospitality and tourism educators.
Launched in 2015, the MGH is a first-of-its-kind partnership involving three leading institutions in Europe, Asia and North America. The programme was commended for its unique approach to graduate education in the hospitality sector, including its immersion in business projects, certification, and field trips to global business hubs.
The innovative educational strategy enables students to spend one semester in each of the institutions in different continents, providing them with exposure to three distinct markets and diverse cultures. The tripartite programme strives to nurture a strong international mindset in future hospitality leaders, enabling them to excel in the dynamic global environment.
Rated number one in the world in the “Hospitality and Tourism Management” category according to ShanghaiRanking’s Global Ranking of Academic Subjects 2020, PolyU’s SHTM pursues a distinctive vision of hospitality and tourism education.
