Key facts about AIHM’s Bachelor of Business Administration in Global Hospitality Management Programme.

AIHM is bringing the Les Roches accredited curriculum to South East Asia for the first time. The curriculum covers 3.5 years, which includes 7 semesters. Each semester builds on the previous and provides students with a holistic learning experience.

The programme aims to prepare students for a range of global management and operational careers in the international tourism and hospitality sectors, and to provide them with the tools to begin their entrepreneurial ventures. Building on operational skills and knowledge, the programme further develops management theories and competencies using a range of teaching and learning processes.

At AIHM, we put an emphasis on experiential learning.

On top of hands-on learning and personalised mentoring in the classroom, our bachelor’s degree programme includes two internship placements that will help you gain real-world experience and insider information that you’ll draw on for the rest of your career.

Internships take place in Semesters 2 and 5. The first is at a Minor Hotels property in Thailand, immersing students in a world of top-tier hospitality.

The second internship is an international placement of each student’s choosing – whether a hotel abroad, a Fortune 500 company, or an exciting start-up.

During each placement, you will have the chance to dive deeper into your specialisation and put your knowledge into practice.
