Hotelschool The Hague is an international university of applied sciences specialising in hospitality management located in The Hague and in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

Hotelschool The Hague is one of the independent single sector universities of applied sciences in the Netherlands.


  • ‘’Hotelschool The Hague’’ was founded and funded in 1929 by HORECAF, the former employers’ organisation in the hotel and catering sector.

Since its foundation, the Hotelschool has become an international school specialised in hospitality management offering a 4-year bachelor's degree in Hotel and Hospitality Management. This degree course is also available as the accelerated International Fast Track Programme.

  • In 2002, Hotelschool The Hague opened a campus in Amsterdam with the same curriculum as the campus in The Hague.


Bachelor of Business Administration in Hotel Management[edit]

Hotelschool The Hague offers a single bachelor's programme on its campuses in The Hague and Amsterdam. The programme is taught in English for both national as well as international students. The four-year bachelor's course results in an internationally recognised Bachelor of Business Administration in Hotel Management.

The bachelor's programme is a business study set in the context of hospitality, where students learn about hospitality from a strategic, tactical and operational perspective and participate in two internships abroad.

The university offers a Fast Track Programme for students with previous hospitality qualifications. The first two years of the regular bachelor's programme are replaced by a five-week programme in the summer, with the rest of the course equal to the regular course.
