FH Joanneum MBA course in International Hospitality and Spa Management

For university graduates, already in the industry or looking to join it, FH Joanneum in Austria offers a postgraduate MBA course in International Hospitality and Spa Management. 
This is a part-time programme which focuses on day-to-day spa management as well as looking at strategic management for long-term planning.

Lectures are held in two weekly blocks to make it compatible with those in full-time work plus there are also additional e-learning phases. The part-time structure of the course allows participants already working within the industry to immediately put into practice what they have learned.

The Spa Business Education certificate will also be accredited and recognised by FH Joanneum, meaning SBE graduates who then want to continue their studies by taking the MBA Spa Management course, offered by FH Joanneum, will be exempt from taking the Spa Management module at university.

A preferential rate will be given to graduates of both the SBE programme and the MBA in International Hospitality and Spa Management who wish to continue their studies with either of the two affiliated programmes.
Combining essential input and insights from leading industry experts with an academic programme will be invaluable in shaping future leaders within the spa industry.
