“….Our civilization like a starship sent into space, travels towards a not-doing society, a society of being where the value of ideas and  creativity in thinking prevail on action. The next psychological revolution will produce the shift to a more evolved economy, more subtle and intelligent, to a more efficient, idealistic and concrete capitalism, at the service of life on earth and of the evolution of man.

In this economy individuals inspired by an “ethical objectiveness” will emerge, cells of a new humanity, capable of nurturing the dream of a global economy and of a politics of a planetary responsibility, people aware that individual, personal improvement is the basis for every progress made in society. ..”

“The economics to come – industries and corporate enterprises should teach the Art of Dreaming – the principles of self-improvement and inner integrity to enable their people, managers and employees, to become advanced beings. The world of business has to realize that real, financial expansion comes out of quality, and declines rapidly when quality is missing.”From “Business as a School of Being”, by Elio D’Anna, Founder and President European School of Economics

In ancient times, a city was measured by the distance a common voice could carry, and there the walls would be built. With the onslaught of technology, civilisation finds itself on the brink of yet another Age, and while men scramble for a place in the panorama of a workplace that is no longer confined to one city or even one nation, the need for advance and improved forms of communication becomes vital.

We strongly believe that the sustenance of an enterprise lies not only in the workings of its systems -these relying among other things on smooth internal and external communication, but in the propagation and expansion of its values and integrity.  In today’s ever-expanding multi-national market, it is only with the support of rigorous communication structures and practices that an enterprise, can expect to not only sustain itself, but grow and flourish.

Graduates from the BA ( Hons) Organisational Communication with Media Management possess:

  • Strong analytical skills, capable of identifying and assessing strategic opportunities that may benefit an organisation in both domestic and international markets
  • A solid understanding of the global business environment, trading systems, and geo and socio-political influences on investments, trade, and the economic landscape and how these are conditioned and influenced by communications
  • The flexibility and creativity are necessary to address challenges presented by a rapidly changing international business environment.
  • The technical skills and experience to communicate effectively using a number of media and on numerous levels – operational, managerial and creative
  • Cross-cultural communication skills, capable of managing people, resources and information across cultural boundaries

MSc Luxury Hospitality and Events Management

    Full-time | Optional Internship

ESE has been providing hospitality training at the highest levels for three decades. Our President and Founder’s first commercial enterprise, a Luxury Hotel and Restaurant- Il Bottaccio (bottaccio.com) became a member of the prestigious Relais & Chateaux chain only three years after its creation – a feat unheard of in the Hospitality Industry. In its thirty-three years of activity, Il Bottaccio also boasts three red forks in the Michelin Guide and a history of illustrious guests from the worlds of film, music and politics. The Bottaccio project later expanded to London to include the management of luxury events. Bottaccio London is now preparing its next two centers for opening : one in King’s Cross, opposite the St. Pancras station, and the other at 22 Bishop’s Gate – the highest viewing deck in Europe.

As the world moves towards a ‘not-doing’ society, in which people value the practice of making and taking time to dedicate to themselves, the worlds of luxury hospitality and events are growing exponentially more important, and potentially also more profitable. The UK events industry alone is worth £42 billion and inbound business visits to Britain equate to 23.5% of all visits. Along with a predicted shortfall of personnel in the industry, especially at management level, this course will provide students with the skills and knowledge to find employment or start their own business and thrive.

The ESE Master of Science in Luxury Hospitality and Events programme aims to provide a luminous pathway addressing numerous scenarios for students who have studied undergraduate degrees and would like to either deepen their knowledge or change expertise to the areas of luxury hospitality and events management.

In addition to comprehensive curriculum, a variety of activities and specialised workshops are available on a campus-by-campus basis, from gastronomy, menu planning and cooking, to wedding planning, flower arranging and cake decorating, to sound systems, silver service, and photography in order to complete students’ personal talent portfolio.

THE COURSE AIM TO:

  • Create industry leaders with a strong sense of the meaning of luxury, and the value of brand integrity and to develop a range of leadership skills and abilities such as motivating others, leading changes, and resolving conflict
  • Encourage students to develop and achieve skills in relation to communication, organisation and working with others from diverse cultures and backgrounds in a professional manner
  • Instruct students in the use of customer feedback and research to facilitate their creation of unique gastronomical products and experiences for their clients
  • Provide students with the framework to analyse data and predict consumer behaviour and optimise product availability and price to maximise revenue growth in the hospitality industry
  • Stimulate the formation of a personal approach to both hospitality and event management through the critical study of contemporary organisations and practices across a range of scenarios
  • Illustrate and provide first-hand experience in the technical and managerial aspects of luxury food and beverage management to students who require it
  • Instruct students to originate, interpret and critically evaluate concepts, ideas and plans expressed in a variety of media, and use them in the pursuit of personally identified and formulated projects related to hospitality and events management.
