Specialization The Hospitality Entrepreneur

Realize your dreams and be your own master in today’s hospitality world….

Specialization The Hospitality EntrepreneurToday’s conditions favor the launch of small and medium enterprises with the boutique hotel and the concept restaurant in full flower.

To launch a successful company, the entrepreneur needs an idea that is ripe for its time, the ability to gather evidence to support feasibility, the project management tools to keep the project on time and on budget, the communication skills to write a convincing business plan and make a successful pitch, and access to capital and business angels to help make the dream reality.
Successful hospitality start-ups are about tools, processes and contacts, but they are also about perseverance, autonomy, and a can-do attitude.

Through theoretical courses and an extended project designed to allow you to develop your own entrepreneurial ideas, the “Hospitality Entrepreneur” specialization nurtures your entrepreneurial spirit while providing a blueprint for a successful launch.
