Is this bachelor programme right for you?

Tio’s Hotel and Event Management bachelor programme offers you the best of two worlds: a traditional hotel management degree combined with aspects of event management. Do you recognise yourself in the following description? Are you:

Hospitable?

Is hospitality in your blood and are you always looking to offer your guests the best possible experience? This bachelor’s degree is perfect for you. During the programme, you learn all about hospitable entrepreneurship and you will work in hotels and restaurants and during events.

Interested in the hotel industry?

Have you always been drawn to the hotel industry? Never a dull moment! You can work as a front-office manager and be the face of the hotel. Or perhaps revenue management is more your thing. You determine the best room prices based on expectations and historical data.

An organisational talent?

Are you in control and excellent at motivating others? Become a talent in organising events. From festivals and sports events to conventions and trade shows. You might also work in the hotel industry and host events as part of the banqueting department. Hosting events is something you learn in practice: during the event week, you take part in the event game and work as part of a team to develop a new event concept for a business.

Curious?

Do you have a sharp eye for detail, are you always up to date and eager to learn? Would you like to go behind the scenes of events? The researcher in you will get everything they want. During the study programme, you attend events and get a chance to go behind the scenes. This gives you the perfect opportunity to take in every bit of information about the organisation of the event.

Entrepreneurial?

Do you see opportunities wherever you go? Would you like to start up your own business? Together with your fellow students, you run your own hotel and are responsible for the organisation of events. You can also choose the Entrepreneurship minor, during which you and your team members set up a company together.

Interested in other cultures?

The world is your playing field when working in the hospitality industry. Even during your studies, you will come into contact with different cultures during the study trip, your international internship or while studying abroad for six months or a year.

Curious about food concepts?

Would you like to develop a new food concept? In the cooking studio, you will master various preparation techniques. The F&B management and menu development & design courses teach you everything about food concepts, composing menus and menu engineering and design.

A team player?

Running a hotel and organising events are team efforts. You need a team around you to make the impossible possible. By working together well, you can continue to surpass your guests’ and visitors’ expectations!

Hotel management or event management?

Is the Hotel and Event Management study course a hotel management programme or an event management programme? It is both! Hotel management and event management are a golden combination, which is why Tio has combined both aspects into its Hotel and Event Management bachelor’s degree: the traditional hotel management degree combined with aspects of event management.
