Master Your Success with SHTM Postgraduate Degrees
As the hospitality and tourism industry experiences a tidal wave of change, it is evident that our industry professionals must lead and manage many different circumstances. Developing the right skills and knowledge is crucial for us to identify opportunities and respond to them effectively and efficiently.

At the SHTM, we offer internationally recognised doctoral and Master's degrees for those who seek to extend the frontiers of their knowledge and fast-track their careers.

The Doctor of Hotel and Tourism Management (D.HTM) programme attracts a wide range of professionals who wish to enhance their careers, from experienced practitioners and government representatives to academics from around the world. This ground-breaking programme offers a unique combination of subjects and research, and its flexible delivery is ideal for busy students. Internationally recognised, the D.HTM programme has a well-earned reputation for helping graduates to advance their careers by developing their innovation, creativity and research skills in an Asian context.

Offered by the SHTM in Hong Kong, Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne in Switzerland and the Conrad N. Hilton College of Hotel and Restaurant Management at the University of Houston in the United States, the Master of Science in Global Hospitality Business is an innovative educational programme that allows students to spend one semester in each of Europe, Asia and North America to take advantage of these three outstanding faculties and campuses. More than a Master's degree and more than a career booster, this tripartite programme provides students with an in-depth understanding of these three distinct markets and with access to three strong alumni networks.

Our MSc in International Hospitality Management gives students a strong business foundation for career success and creates international leaders, educators and researchers for the global hospitality industry. The MSc in International Tourism and Convention Management offers many insights into the tourism and convention sectors, developing dedicated professionals who are equipped to lead the industry into its future. Through these unique programmes, students are able to develop best industry practice, management skills and research, taking them from theory to practice and ensuring that they have a competitive advantage in the field. The flexible delivery patterns and modes of study allow the students to complete their studies in one year.

The MSc in International Wine Management develops industry leaders, educators and researchers with a deep understanding of the latest trends in the wine industry. This programme, which equips our graduates to become future leaders in global wine management, is taught by leading academics and industry experts, such as Masters of Wine Jeannie Cho Lee, Steve Charters, Debra Meiburg and Sarah Heller, ensuring its relevance. This programme features residential study trips to renowned wine regions worldwide and provides students with opportunities to learn about wine consumers from mainland China and to gain insights into some of the fastest-growing wine markets in the world. The programme can be completed in one year.

Students pursuing higher education seek an educational institution that provides an international and dynamic learning environment in which they can fully realise their potential and have their talents recognised, and the SHTM's doctoral and Master's programmes are ideal stepping stones to the top tiers of the hospitality and tourism profession.
