2-week Paris Trip with the MBA in Hospitality Management

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.

Here’s an overview of the itinerary of the Paris trip of the Hospitality Management program at MBA ESG.*

As you can see, there is an exciting array of events planned for 2 weeks that are both educational and recreational. This will give you a clear understanding of how the hospitality industry works on a global scale. France, being the connoisseur of hospitality and tourism , is one of the best places to experience both the business and leisure side of the industry.

The study trip will also add a lot of weight to your resume. It shows that you have experience with travel and worked outside your comfort zone. Since the hospitality industry deals with meeting and interacting with different types of people and personalities, this trip will help you get accustomed to cultural shifts that will occur frequently in your career.

*Please note: The fees for the Paris trip have to be borne by the students themselves.
