Master of Science Degree (M.Sc.) in Hospitality and Tourism Management by MINOAN INTERNATIONAL COLLEGE

In response to the large and growing demand within Europe and beyond, particularly in those countries which are in the process of rapidly developing tourism as a mainstay of their economies, MINOAN INTERNATIONAL COLLEGE offers an outstanding master’s degree program in tourism and hospitality management.

This Master’s Degree is unique in that it creatively combines sound business theory with current and relevant theory in tourism and hospitality management and the need for research into the industry.

General Description of the Master’s Degree Programme

The Master of Science Degree in Tourism and Hospitality Management is structured to meet the needs of:

  1.  holders of undergraduate degrees in hospitality and tourism management, and  
  2.  those having degrees in other disciplines who are looking for a qualification which will allow them to enter the industry in  managerial capacities.

Successful candidates from the second category will be enrolled in a “bridging programme” which provides them with the necessary academic background in the field and professional experience in the form of a supervised practicum / internship.

The flexibility of the program is ensured through several related features:

  1. the possibility of completing the degree on a full-time or part-time basis
  2. fulfilling degree requirements in several modes including traditional semester-long courses, intersession courses and intensive  compressed courses, and  
    iii. continuous student intake.
