Our certificate in Hospitality Management (KHC) prepares students to enter the world of hospitality as leaders and managers with a strategic approach to business. It combines management theory to organize operational processes, assess developments correctly and make strategic decisions.



More responsibility, say good-bye to split shifts and hello to a better income and life-work-balance.  This course is a real alternative to the Baccalaureate degree providing you with the chance to gain certification without having graduated from grammar school.
