Melanie CANDAN
MSc Hospitality Management

 I graduated from the Msc Hospitality Management of Paris School of Business and I really appreciated that the school took good initiatives during the pandemic by accommodating to our educational needs.

The courses prepared us for a variety of roles within general business practices but the specialization courses allowed me to understand how the hospitality industry is different from other industries. Many of our professors were leaders of the industry, which allowed us to better understand the reality of the Tourism and Hospitality business.
