2-week Paris Trip with the MBA in Hospitality Management

2-week Paris Trip with the MBA in Hospitality Management

Tourism and Hospitality Industry in India

An internship or study trip abroad is a great way for you to experience hotel and, more broadly, hospitality management from a global perspective. A study trip, especially one abroad, will help you acclimate yourself to business practices and management systems that you may not be learning in India. Thus, it provides a unique learning avenue for you to broaden your horizons academically and professionally.

MBA ESG’s Master of Business Administration (MBA) in Hospitality Management program offers a 2-week trip to Paris that will cover all aspects of the hospitality industry and the business it involves. The 2-week Paris trip is more of a study trip than an internship. Students of the Hospitality Management program will be visiting different classes of hotels and restaurants, meeting their management teams, learning the day-to-day workings of these establishments, and also visiting a few of the most important landmarks in Paris.
