Course Overview

The Bachelor's degree in Hotel Management gives you an overview of the planning, development and management of hotel operations. In addition, you gain in-depth knowledge in the areas of accounting, annual financial statements and personnel management.

Our bachelor's program is modular, which means that you study using subject areas that are divided into so-called "modules". Within these modules there is an introductory course and an in-depth course, which prepare you systematically for the completion of this module. Within the modules, you will receive ECTS points (European Credit Transfer System) for each successful completion, which document your performance. These ECTS points are internationally comparable and of course recognized.


In the fifth and sixth semester, you choose your three specializations in the amount of 30 ECTS. To do this, you opt for at least one scientific specialization ("compulsory specialization") from the tourism, hospitality and event sectors and a maximum of two functional and industry specializations ("elective specializations").
Some exemplary specializations are:

  • Advanced Leadership
  • Business controlling
  • Leisure events
  • Applied sales
  • event management
