As the world around us changes constantly, we must adapt and navigate through these changes. For hospitality, this requires a new style of leader - creative and innovative leaders who think of hospitality, not as a particular industry, but as a concept that operates across all sectors and businesses. Also changing, in an increasingly digital world, is that our genuine human experience is getting lost. After all, it is this human experience that lies at the heart of what is memorable, but it is naturally also what builds quality employer brands and helps businesses grow. Are you eager to take the lead and push the boundaries? To broaden your horizon and shape the future of hospitality? Then join this adventurous programme which is taught at three universities in three different European cities.

The master’s programme Leading Hospitality Innovation enables you to learn and practice the global competences you need by means of a variety of teaching and learning approaches by an international staff in Maastricht, Dublin and Barcelona. You will not only learn in the classical sense of the word but also with the added value of a range of new experiences that is a natural outcome of living and studying abroad, working together with international fellow students, academics, hospitality superstars and clients, and getting to know the hospitality industry in distinct cultural settings.
