The Emirates Academy of Hospitality Management (EAHM) is one of the first higher education institutions in the Middle East offering internationally recognised degree-level courses in hospitality leadership.
Located opposite the striking Burj Al Arab, EAHM is set in a vibrant neighbourhood packed with unique prospects and opportunities. Students at EAHM can embark on a rewarding educational experience where they can grow, learn, and thrive in an environment surrounded by incredible infrastructure, the latest facilities and strong partnerships.
EAHM’s programmes include a three-year Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA Hons) degree
in International Hospitality Management, an Associate of Business Administration (ABA) degree in Hospitality Operations, and a one-year full-time Master of Business Administration (MBA) in International Hospitality Management. In partnership with a global network
of business leaders, EAHM’s programmes are designed to deliver the best-in-class learning experience, as they are designed to cater to the latest industry trends and needs.
The EAHM difference
Real-life experience: The BBA programme includes a six-month internship with a premier hospitality brand. It gives students the chance to hone and develop leadership, collaboration and problem-solving skills in real-life situations. It also provides them with an opportunity to create networks within the industry.
Personalised learning: Unlike large universities, we specialise in smaller class sizes, which allows for more one-on-one attention from your instructor. Students will also be assigned a personal tutor, who will meet with them regularly to discuss their academic and personal progress and career development.
A partnership to kick-start your career: We’re an integral part of the international hospitality group Jumeirah Hotels and Resorts, giving pupils the chance to explore the inner workings of its world-class properties. Jumeirah has been regarded as the most luxurious and innovative group in the world for over two decades. As a part of the Jumeirah Group, EAHM students can gain first-hand experience working in a range of five-star hotels in the UAE and beyond. They can also see for themselves how a world-famous brand operates its human resources, food and beverage, marketing and more.
Today, EAHM is recognised to be the best hospitality school in the region and one of the top 10 hospitality schools worldwide, setting it apart from the competition. As a result, EAHM graduates boast a 97 per cent employment rate, with successful applications in over 100 companies across 40-plus countries. And with study programmes recognised across the globe, strong partnerships with the industry and proximity to some of the best hotels in the world, it’s truly the best place in the world to launch your career.
