The Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Hotel and Tourism Management programme is designed for students pursuing applied research in their advanced education. Its objective is to provide a theoretical and research base that prepares graduates for research and education positions in hospitality and tourism.

This programme offers advanced research training based on individual interests and career aspirations, which allows students to develop their ability to complete significant research in a specific area of hospitality or tourism. The intellectual and supportive environment fostered by the School encourages academic staff and students to collaborate to conduct research and disseminate information through scholarly publications, conference presentations, and research seminars. Graduates will make positive contributions to the growth and enhancement of hospitality and tourism research and education.

While the School of Hotel and Tourism Management (SHTM) does not normally admit students for a Master of Philosophy (MPhil) programme, students with exceptional qualities may be considered for admission on a self-financed basis, without a stipend.
