Hospitality Training Practicum
A challenging work assignment with a complementary learning component
Ester Tueros, Ukraine
Management Development Graduate Program, Hilton Hotels (U.K.)
“For me, the learning by doing methodology was a definite highlight. EADA uses a hands-on approach in all classes, incorporating case studies, group projects and oral presentations. The methodology was practical, and put us in the shoes of managers who need to take a decision. The content of the courses is also very connected to real life, so I learnt how to apply all the knowledge to real situations.”
Connect with leaders in the industry.
An integral part of the programme is getting out of the classroom to see case studies in action and network with world-renowned professionals. You gain an inside look into the culture and day-to-day life of a wide range of companies and explore different professions in real operating environments.
Get exposure to diverse working methods, interact with different company structures across sectors, and develop an in-depth understanding of best practices through conversations with respected industry leaders.
Get a comprehensive overview of tourism and hospitality while learning about the latest trends and advances. Encounter innovative solutions to industry-wide challenges and be inspired by the disruptive perspectives of pioneering companies.
Hone your expertise in specialised areas by building relationships with experts facing the same challenges that you analyse in class. Share your ideas and ask questions to become an expert in your own right.
Your Marketing Challenge
Work as a consultant for a real company
You compete in teams to develop a marketing plan for a client company that has a real issue such as increasing sales, reaching a specific target client, entering a market or identifying innovative channels to reach the customer. You act as teams of consultants that pitch your approach, and the winning team has the chance to see the plan implemented.
