The SHTM offers a research-based graduate programme that leads to a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree. This degree programme is designed for students who wish to pursue pure research in their advanced education.
The objective of the PhD programme is to provide a theoretical and research base to prepare graduates for educational and research positions in the hotel and tourism industry. The programme offers advanced research training based on individual interests and career aspirations to allow students to develop the ability to complete significant research in a specific area of hospitality or tourism. The intellectual and supportive environment fostered by the School encourages academic staff and students to collaborate to conduct research and disseminate information through scholarly publications and conference presentations. Graduates will make positive contributions to the growth and enhancement of hospitality and tourism education and research.
While SHTM does not admit students for Master of Philosophy (MPhil), students with exceptional qualities can be considered for admission based on self-financed basis (i.e. without stipend).
