For an outstanding hospitality management learning experience, consider the School of Hospitality Management's summer program in Europe. Experience European hospitality for four weeks residing in the Netherlands and Italy, in addition to studying and traveling in France, Belgium, and Germany. The students live in an international environment and learn about the hospitality field in a uniquely European fashion. Penn State offers six advanced undergraduate credits to students who complete this program. This program is ideal for hospitality management students but welcomes students from other majors.
The class begins in Maastricht in the Netherlands. Midway through the program, classes will move to the Apicius International School of Hospitality in Florence, Italy. The program provides field trips to destinations such as Amsterdam, Germany, Paris, Cinque Terre, and Rome for tours. Students will also participate in day tours while in Maastricht and Florence. Teaching faculty are Dr. Marja Verbeeten, Teaching Assistant Professor, and Mr. George Ruth, Senior Instructor. Administrative faculty are Dr. Bert Van Hoof, Professor, and Dr. Daniel Mount, Associate Professor and Professor-in-Charge of International Studies and Students. There are two Penn State faculty with the program at all times.
Summer: May 19 - June 16, 2019
