Special features Hotel Management

In-house training company

Sibelicious is a training company where guests can enjoy tasteful food at a reasonable price while you - the facility or hotel manager of the future - practise your hospitality skills. Restaurant Sibelicious is accommodated in a historic building on the campus of Breda University of Applied Sciences. 

You will work in several outlets such as visitor centre, catering, kitchen and restaurant. You organise and provide services to all kind of guests, who come in for lunch, dinner, a meeting or conference. In your first year you will be managed by your second-year peers. In your second year you yourself will take up the manager’s position. You will get to know all the different aspects of the business – from the first contact with the client to drafting a budget proposal, right up to the execution of an event and post-event aftercare.

In daily operations you will learn to look at processes and routines based on the lean method. You will learn to work as efficiently and sustainably as possible, and reducing the amount of waste and combatting food waste is crucial in this process.

Hilton Class

Every year a group of top-performing students is selected to benefit from exclusive guest lectures and access to Hilton Worldwide University e-learning programmes. If you join the Hilton Class, you will also get support and advice from senior executives from Hilton Worldwide.

In addition, you will be offered two full-time work placements at Hilton. Outstanding students could also secure the opportunity to start their career with Hilton upon graduation.

Management Development Programme

With the Management Development Programme you can develop your personal and professional skills throughout your studies. This will enable you to get the best out of yourself. In addition to one-to-one coaching, we also find bonding with your fellow students very important, as well as study behaviour and study skills. 

According to the method of Lumina Learning you are going to work on your personal qualities. You will learn to reflect on your own actions, and you will learn how to give feedback to others and how to deal with criticism. The method helps you to develop yourself into a young professional and enables you to present yourself to the industry in a professional way.
