The hospitality Industry is very much a 'school of knocks' career and I actually think that many of us do not choose it, it chooses us. This is an amazing opportunity to take your preconceived thoughts of business and mix it with some of the world’s best professors and academics, as well as some of the best business leaders in Scotland. It’s a real game changer, equipping you with new skills to benefit the organisation you’re in right now, or to start your own business.
