ESE Short Courses
Only the ‘dream’ is real – The ‘dream’ is the most real thing there is. Learn to live within the world of the real. Here your habits and convictions, your old codes, no longer apply… What you call reality is only an image that must be completely overturned. Nothing of the old world can be brought with you. You will have to learn a new way of thinking, breathing, acting and loving… It’s time to abandon your conflictual vision of the world. It’s time for you to die to all that which is lifeless. It’s time to be reborn. It’s time for a new exodus and a new freedom. It is the greatest adventure a man can possibly imagine: the regaining of his own lost integrity.
The Professional Programme in Hospitality and Tourism Management at the European School of Economics provides a strong foundation in the knowledge and tools in business and management that are necessary to excel in this prime growth area. Participants will explore the economic impact of tourism and hospitality in a range of international contexts, and consider the evolving social, cultural, economic and political factors, which influence the industry.
This programme will explore in depth the role of Customer Service, Personnel Management, Hospitality Management and International Marketing and Tourism. Participants will be able to analyse and evaluate the policies and principles that best promote a customer-focused culture and learn how to successfully manage a team to obtain this objective. Participants will also develop the skills that will enable them to predict potential trends and pitfalls within the industry and design and develop effective strategies to adjust their marketing strategies accordingly.
