The QMU MBA Hospitality fulfils the Universitys vision of providing an industry relevant and inter-disciplinary experience for students. We are widely recognised as a centre of excellence in hospitality and this course has been devised in consultation with employers and managers within the sector. Employers look beyond the letters when recruiting and want employees with real-life experience so weve replaced the traditional dissertation with a student-centred, business focused project that allows you to investigate, design and lead a real world project. Within the hospitality sector the need for high performing groups and teams holds a particular importance. By connecting our modular structure, our course takes a clear and consistent focus on team and project dynamics, and challenges you to take on different types of roles in delivering objectives.

What our students have in common is a gusto for the hospitality sector and a desire to learn and succeed. If you are considering applying and can add your mix of enthusiasm and ambition to the course we would be delighted to discuss entry with you. If you would like to visit QMU, please get in touch.
