Postgraduate Diploma (PGD)


PGD in Hospitality & Design Management


IHTTI’s Postgraduate Diploma in Hospitality & Design Management has been designed to provide students with a broad understanding of the international hospitality and related industries. The programme has a dual perspective. On one hand it focuses on the daily operations within a hotel’s departments, on the other hand on the decision making processes that lead to effective departmental and hotel management. The programme provides a foundation that allows the student to work effectively within the Hospitality industry and helps to build a career up to executive management level.

The course of the hotel management school is particularly useful for those who have already obtained a university level qualification within another discipline and intend to become senior managers within international hotels, chains and resorts. It is equally relevant for those who have significant industry experience and need an internationally recognised qualification to advance to the next level in their career.


Minimum Entry Requirements - PGD

  • Minimum age: 21 years
  • Bachelor’s Degree in any discipline OR at least 3 years work experience in a supervisory position in any industry.
