You gain practical experience working as a trainee in hotels all over the world
The IHMS is a Hotel and Management School which focuses on the world of Hospitality. We offer outstanding education for young people interested in a career in Hospitality. The classes, which are taught in English, are challenging, interesting and valuable. They equip students for employment within the Hospitality sector, as well as give a sound basis for starting a business. During the Industrial training period, students gain practical experience working as a trainee in Hotels all over the world.
The Hotel Management School offers students a four year program of study. The first three years are spent in our classrooms, Hotel, Restaurants and Kitchens. The last year involves an Industrial Training. Together this creates a solid foundation for a successful career in Hospitality. In this course students perform real life projects which are supported by a number of subjects. In addition to their practical work experience, all students are expected to complete study in:
- Business Administration
- Business Economics
- Human Resource Management
- Computer Science, Catering
- Hotel Management
- Beverages and Menu education
- Hospitality Skills, Reception Work
- Environmental Hygiene Automation
- Financial Systems
- English, Spanish and Dutch.
Please note: there is a requirement for passing National Dutch language Central Exams to complete this program.
At the beginning of the third year, students enjoy an educational culinary wine trip.
It is not required to have experience in the hospitality sector, but it will help if you have already gained some. Sometimes the hospitality world seems really nice on the outside, but it often turns out that – behind the scenes – it is hard work. You have to really like that and be able to handle it. It is also not required to have cooking experience.
If you plan to start your own business, you must be skilled in doing business and in writing a business plan. Both the “Hotel Management” study programme and the “Cooperating Hospitality Entrepreneur” (Meewerkend Horeca Ondernemer) offer these opportunities. If you are not attracted to the “hotel world”, then it is best to follow your dream by following the study programme: “Meewerkend Horeca Ondernemer” (offered only in the Dutch language).
Areas of employment?
The study programme Manager Hospitality Entrepreneur (MOH) is a training for a managerial position in the hospitality sector. Think of a position as a manager in a hotel, restaurant or conference centre. Many of our students are also offered great positions outside the hospitality industry, such as in the banking sector, in the retail sector, in the business world, etc.
