The scholarship programme is open to managers in the UK hospitality industry that are likely to be promoted to senior management. It allows up to 18 candidates to enrol in one of four residential courses at Cranfield University School of Management, Cornell University (USA) or Ecole Hoteliere de Lausanne (Switzerland).
“Since founding the scholarships in 1997, we’ve seen 185 people benefit through education on these world-leading management courses,” explains Stuart Johnson, chairman of the Master Innholders.
“This programme is part of our commitment to help the UK hospitality industry compete successfully in an increasingly competitive global stage.”
Applications for the 2013 intake are now open and close at the end of June, with interviews taking place in November.
For successful candidates there are four courses available for 2013:
- The Lausanne Hospitality Management Summer Programme: A 14-day residential programme at Ecole Hoteliere de Lausanne, Switzerland in June and July 2013
- Accelerated Talent Development Programme: A 12-day residential programme at Cranfield University School of Management in either March, June or October 2013
- The General Managers Programme: A 10-day residential programme Cornell University, USA in June 2013
- The Business Leaders Programme: Cranfield University School of Management, UKstarting in June 2013
Each candidate is subjected to rigorous assessment based on aptitude, industry experience, communication and self-awareness, as well as their personal development and financial needs.
The courses offer the successful candidate the opportunity to enhance their knowledge, skills and benefit from training that is not available in the workplace by matching them to a course based on their industry experience and areas of development.
The Master Innholder scholarship programme is funded annually by the Worshipful Company of Innholders, the Savoy Educational Trust, the Lord Forte Foundation and the Master Innholders Charitable Trust which have invested almost £1.5 million since it was founded in 1997.
