A program that flexes to your hectic schedule

As a hospitality management school, we understand the nature of the industry and that, if you’re working in it, you’re not always available during traditional school hours.

That’s why the Executive Master’s is purpose-built to be flexible, not only for students in different time zones but also for those working unsociable hours or during seasons when the workload is heavier.

Modules and deadlines can be deferred and our faculty members are on hand to discuss how you can make studying for the Executive Master’s fit your schedule.

Flexible, one-to-one support when you need it

If you have been out of education for a long time, are lacking confidence or are feeling overwhelmed by study and your workload, our faculty members offer one-to-one support to help make things work for you.

They understand perfectly how busy working in hospitality can be, so the sessions they arrange with you fit your schedule or your time zone.
