We are proud to be the host of the Eurhodip Conference 2021. An important conference for teachers, students and stake holders from the leading hotel schools in Europe.
At Stenden HMS we believe that the world today calls for people who understand the art of making others feel welcome. People who have both leadership as well as service talents. We call this Hostmanship. It is our mission to guide our students to be the game changers in the global hospitality industry and beyond.
We believe that the world today calls for people who are prepared to give. People who understand the art of making others feel welcome. People who have both leadership as well as service talents. We call this Hostmanship. This is a concept that we have adopted and honed. Hostmanship is at the heart of our programme and goes beyond hospitality. It’s a mentality; a drive to combine the desire to serve, genuine attention and leadership into an inspirational outcome.
Studying at Stenden Hotel Management School is learning at one of the most progressive and innovative Hotel Management Schools. An international Hotel Management School that continually challenges both herself and her students to gain knowledge, develop talents and learn to be agile in a fast-paced and rapidly changing world. A Dutch founded Hotel Management School that thinks globally and has campus sites across continents.
Stenden HMS offers her students the chance to study across borders.
Motivation, talent and attitude are the most important criteria for selecting our students. It is about you, not your background or origin. We prepare our students to work on multi-level environment by giving them a rich and diverse toolkit with both hard and soft skills. At Stenden HMS student sees the value of his fellow man as the core of his being. A hostmanship talent who makes the difference by always keeping the big picture in mind and is able to make and justify high level decisions.
We understand that teaching is about more than simply passing on information. Stenden HMS stands for making and maintaining intense connections with qualified lectures, professionals from the industry, and the research community. We don’t use a classical system of education but we embrace that students have the ability to be flexible and decide their own learning path whereby they are better prepared for a dynamic world: a world where professions and positions come and go.
