In the last few years, hotel companies have undergone an intense process of development, globalisation and vertical concentration. This has brought about a training deficit among practitioners, who need skills, which provide them with a corporate vision in the management of hotel groups. This is especially important due to the economic weight of the hotel sector in the world economy.
The MBA in Hotel Management program has been conceived with a view to overcoming the lack of hotel chain managers, and it will provide a solid base in business and sectorial specialisation. Therefore, it is an MBA addressed to the hotel sector. All the course is imparted at university level and with the teaching quality that the UAB is renowned for.
Localisation strategies and multimarket activity influence strategic management and value creation, and evolve progressively towards the adoption of corporate strategies. All the areas of strategy management are influenced by these circumstances and at the same time, they require an increasingly in-depth knowledge of the hospitality business and progressive immersion in the e-economy. These and other aspects are dealt with in the MBA in Hospitality Management program, which is clearly oriented toward practical knowledge and the exchange of experiences in order to provide a highly interactive teaching programme
Graduates and university diploma holders currently working in hospitality management interested in receiving high level specialised education that will enable them to become involved in senior management of large corporations and hotel chains.
The classes will be imparted in Spanish and the materials will consist of publications in different languages, mainly Spanish and English.
This postgraduate programme makes use of blended learning, in which classroom-based techniques are combined with online distance learning.
Obviously, one of the main actives of this programme is the wealth of experience provided by the participants. For this reason, the teaching staff will stimulate active participation and will encourage debate since student attitude and participation are crucial in order to favour the exchange of opinions and contrast on pertinent issues.
