Unlike a traditional hospitality programme, PHSL trains students on the business aspect and the luxury segment of service-oriented industries in an international context. The goal of the program is to enable students to become entrepreneurial leaders and managers who can transform the service industry organizations of the future. Students learn the difference between leadership and management and the relationship between the two in the broader context of the service industry.

Vedatya’s Programme in Hospitality and Service Leadership (PHSL) is a 4-year full time program with a degree offered by Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU), UK.

Unlike a traditional hospitality programme, PHSL trains students on the business aspect and the luxury segment of service-oriented industries in an international context. The goal of the program is to enable students to become entrepreneurial leaders and managers who can transform the service industry organizations of the future. Students learn the difference between leadership and management and the relationship between the two in the broader context of the service industry.

This course is structured to enable learners who are likely to look at not just hospitality sector-specific opportunities as career paths, but also consider other domains like real estate, consulting, retail, banking and financial services, resort and wellness, restaurant sector and many other service industry related opportunities. From the beginning of the course one learns how to be a leader, exploring the key issues and building a foundation for a career in the chosen service industry domain. Focus on leadership and management related skills however are not at the cost of key ‘operational skills’

that are critical in the Indian context. Students thus also get exposure to operational skills in a step-up approach throughout the programme.

The 24-week internship provides ‘on the job experience’ that supplements the work experience and skills developed over the first two semesters. This also allows learners to identify areas of interest within the hospitality and larger service industry space.

The third year allows students to explore some of the earlier mentioned service industry domain for advanced learning; this allows them to strengthen skills and knowledge in these domains in alignment with their career interest and goals.

The year four is going to be at Manchester Metropolitan University, UK. Details of the curriculum delivered there are also shared as a part of the programme structure. Students will be eligible to work for two years in UK after the completion of the programme as per the current UK immigration policy.

Students have the option to be enrolled on Bachelor in Tourism Studies (BTS) from IGNOU to get an Indian degree in addition to the one from MMU, UK.
