A Doctor of Philosophy is one of the highest academic awards available at universities. Like other doctorate degrees, it is often research-based. Students who want to enroll in a PhD program may need a master’s degree.

What is a PhD in Hotel Management? The study of hotel management teaches students how to make innovative changes to the industry by researching past and current tourism trends. Scholars may be able to choose a focus for their education, such as facilities management, consumer behavior or hospitality real estate management. Most programs at this level incorporate lectures, workshops and discussions into the mostly research-based learning. Scholars may be expected to take certain courses, such as scientific foundations of hospitality management, advanced research seminar, and hospitality marketing and promotion.

This education is beneficial because it can prepare students for leadership roles in the industry by building on their communication, problem-solving and organization skills. Not only can these skills make graduates competitive applicants, but they can also help them succeed in their private lives by fostering meaningful relationships with loved ones.

The cost of a PhD can depend on a few factors, including location, duration and subject matter. Most doctorate degrees take three years to complete, but some may take longer, which could affect the tuition. Applicants can get an estimate by contacting a specific university.

Many graduates with a PhD in Hotel Management end up in research positions, such as hospitality administration researcher. However, scholars may be prepared for a variety of other careers as well. Some students go on to become professors, hospitality coordinators, chief executive officers, marketing specialists and hotel management consultants. The exact career opportunities available can depend on the interests, education and work history of the students.

No matter where you live, you may be able to find a PhD program near you. Some schools even offer online programs. To apply or learn more, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
