It's a fast-paced world in which we work. To stay ahead, professionals and organisations within the hospitality and tourism industry need to continuously upgrade their skills and broaden their knowledge. To this end, the SHTM has developed a series of special Executive Development Programmes, including the 2016 Hong Kong PolyU Winter School and custom-made courses specially designed for individual organisations in areas such as service quality management, human resource management, marketing management, financial management and crisis management.


All Executive Development Programmes are taught by the SHTM's faculty of 70 academic staff drawn from 22 countries and regions, with a combined total of more than 400 years of hospitality or tourism management experience. We have one of the most diverse talent bases of its kind, and all of our staff member specialise in one or more areas of hotel and tourism management. The medium of instruction is either English or Putonghua, and simultaneous interpretation can be arranged on request.


Participants who complete the Executive Development Programme receive a "Certificate of Completion" awarded by the SHTM.
