Jobs and careers

The service sector is a wide-ranging industry with various subcategories

This means that your future employer, job title and work duties may also vary greatly depending on your efforts and on how you specialise in terms of your work placement, your assignments, your network etc. during your time of study at the International Hospitality Management programme.

Possible job titles

There are numerous possible job titles, which of course depend on your individual profile. Your individual profile is a combination of:

  • Your subject knowledge, that is, the degree to which you master the knowledge acquired through studies.
  • Your work experience, including your work placement.
  • Your personal competencies.
  • Other experience and competencies.

During your time of study, you will acquire knowledge of management, economics and strategy, among many other things, which will give you the skills to handle high-level duties in the hospitality industry.

Some will be able to take up a position as manager or mid-level manager immediately after graduation, while others may need to gain more experience in order to hold a position as manager or middle manager – this will depend on your individual profile.
