MBA Professional (Master of Business Administration) in Hotel & Tourism Management - Paris
Program taught entirely in English
A high-caliber specialized professional program for management positions in large, international hotels and tourism companies.
The MBA Professional, continuation of our Master of Science program since 1992, develops the professional applications in the luxurious Restaurant business (Partnership with Alain Ducasse Formation), and also in the management of international hotels (Professional certification from Cornell School of Hotel Administration).
The students of MBA Professional already have a higher education degree in Hospitality (they come to increase and broaden their knowledge), or in Science, Literature, Arts (AIM’s MBA corresponds to their choice of a professional reorientation).
1st year: MBA Preparatory
The organization of the studies is conceived to value the competence of the students they've already acquired, by managerial knowledge and to develop their sense of analysis, research, teamwork and personal initiative.

AIM's close collaboration with leading international hotel chains and other world-class establishments provides a highly effective means for preparing students for entry into active professional life.
Students having successfully accomplished their Preparatory year start a seven to eight months management training program in an international hotel in France or the world over.
They start with primarily a Front Office/ Rooms and Restaurant Departments work program emphasizing interfacing with the clientele.
Subsequently they continue in the Back Office, providing them the application of their theoretical, technical and practical knowledge at the general administration level.
During their training, they focus on the quality of the services, and participate actively in the daily managerial activities of the departments of finance, accounting, purchasing, marketing, and human resources.
At the end of their second year studies, students are encouraged by the School Administration to have their job immediately instead of starting an internship scheduled until the end of September. Consequently, it is common that a trial period in a company for an international career substitutes this last internship.
