A Hospitality University with A Difference

EAHM offers fully accredited (UAE, UK and Australia) degree programmes at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels in International Hospitality Management. These are business-focused qualifications with a strong teaching emphasis on luxury hotels. Located on a resort-style residential campus, EAHM offers students access to facilities not seen in other institutions – restaurant grade kitchens, three dining outlets, lecture theatres and auditorium, tennis court, pool, gymnasium and basketball court. Students live in studio accommodation with a fully equipped kitchen and ensuite bathroom and views over the campus and toward the Jumeirah hotels.

Graduates of EAHM are skilled to obtain management trainee or equivalent positions in leading hotel chains, whilst others may progress onto postgraduate programmes in various business disciplines. The strong connections that EAHM has within the hospitality industry ensure that graduates are constantly sought after by choice employers. 96% of graduates find employment within the first 6 months of graduation.

Academic Excellence

EAHM is the only accredited university in the United Arab Emirates to offer a three year Honours degree and is the first to have developed a Master of Business Administration (MBA) in International Hospitality Management. Study programmes at EAHM are developed using the Programme Profiling Approach. This approach effectively asks, “What will a graduate be able to contribute upon graduation”, and aims to offer students a multi-disciplinary education which will equip them with academic and professional skills and knowledge.
Such skills and knowledge will provide a basis for competence in a broad range of complex managerial work activities performed in different industry contexts. In addition, the academic association with EHL ensures that the academic content remains relevant. Students are also able to enhance their education through well-established student exchange agreements with EHL and other leading universities such as Cornell University.
Students from other universities are also welcome to apply for a trimester of study at EAHM.
