The MSc in International Hospitality Management is the fruit of a partnership between EMLYON Business School and the Institut Paul Bocuse, an international school specialising in hotel industry, catering and culinary-arts management. Taught exclusively in English, this 16-month programme offers students the possibility to follow classes at both institution's campuses, in France (at Lyon-Ecully), and in China (in Shanghai). With the aim of responding to challenges related to changes in the hotel industry, students develop management techniques   that are specific to this market within an international class.

Taught by academic experts from two institutions and international professionals, the MSc in International Hospitality Management imparts sound knowledge in marketing, human resources management, operations management, finance, etc. with specialised classes in company creation, innovation management, concept development, e-commerce, brand design and also 'the hotel industry lifestyle'.
