Every year a group of top performing students will be selected by this study programme and Hilton to benefit from exclusive guest lectures and have access to Hilton Worldwide University e-learning programmes. They also get support and advice from senior executives from Hilton.
Students on the Hilton Class will also be offered two full-time placements at Hilton. Outstanding students could also secure the opportunity to start their career with Hilton upon graduation.
Hilton Class: what's it like?
Hotel student Marc van Hunen is taking part in the Hilton Class programme. He worked in the front office of Hilton Abu Dhabi for six months, and now he is on a nine-month placement working in procurement for Hilton Worldwide's hotels in the Netherlands and Belgium. Marc: 'It’s been an amazing opportunity. It’s given me the chance to put what I’ve learned into action and to show that I am capable of taking on managerial responsibilities in hotel management.'
