Enter the doors of Hotelschool The Hague, and you enter one of the world’s most special universities.
We are proud of the fact that Hotelschool The Hague is one of the last independent single sector Universities of Applied Sciences in The Netherlands. Hotelschool The Hague was founded and funded in 1929 by the hospitality industry to create a central place where industry partners could gain and share new insight, skills and knowledge. Since its foundation, the Hotelschool has become an international school specialised in hospitality management.
Since the foundation more than 85 years ago the hotel school has become bigger, more internationally oriented and has professionalised immensely. But the original fundamentals stayed the same, like the dedicated focus on hospitality and the strong connection with the industry. Also the “core business” of the hotel school stayed the same; a centre where hospitality knowledge and skills are bundled, developed, researched, shared and transferred as realistic as possible in order to prepare young hospitality leadership talents for a successful career in the business. Hotelschool The Hague, at the heart of Hospitality.
