The A.I.M. Bachelor of Science in Hotel and Tourism Management program, mainly taught in English, opens doors to the international labor market in hospitality, offering a wide range of job opportunities around the world.
The programs are divided into two semesters, the first centered on mainly theoretical teaching involving role plays, real-life situations and workshops and the second providing the student with the chance to put into practice the knowledge (operational in the first year, managerial in the following years) previously acquired.
