Student Reviews

Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

I highly recommend this university to students interested in a serious approach of Tourism and Hospitality Management.

Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

I found everything pretty easy. I did hardly any school work until the final exams and presentations at the very end of the semester. Usually teachers want you to participate but we rarely did any group works.
