This article is sponsored by EMLYON Business School.
The global hospitality industry is booming. It is estimated that by 2020, one out of every 10.4 people will work in this sector (World Travel and Tourism Council, 2011), making the search for talent extremely competitive. The EMLYON MSc in International Hospitality Management, a 16-month, full-time master’s program taught in both France and China, was co-developed by EMLYON Business School and Institut Paul Bocuse to help meet the recruitment needs of this thriving industry. Delivered exclusively in English, the program provides students with a solid foundation in general management with a strong focus on innovation, as well as specialist knowledge in new venture creation, lifestyle hospitality management, brand design and innovation management.
This international hospitality management program brings the opportunity to study in Lyon, the capital of French gastronomy, as well as spending time at EMLYON’s Asian campus and Institut Paul Bocuse’s Restaurant School in Shanghai, where the excellence of Asian hospitality is known around the world. You will gain practical experience during a four to nine month internship, as well as benefitting from a full range of targeted careers workshops and events. A focus on project-based learning throughout the course allows you to translate theory into a real-life business setting with the Entrepreneurial Business Project and the Concept Design & Development Project.

Spend a semester studying in Shanghai
The Asia-Pacific hospitality sector is flourishing. According to research by Boeing, during the next 20 years, nearly half of the world's air traffic growth will be driven by travel to, from or within the Asia-Pacific region. In this region renowned for its devotion to etiquette, students on the EMLYON MSc in International Hospitality Management have the unique opportunity to spend a semester studying in Shanghai at the EMLYON Asian campus and Institut Paul Bocuse’s Restaurant School.
