International Hospitality Management


We are glad to welcome you to NHL Stenden Emmen, for the International Hospitality Management study (IHM). Let’s get you prepared to start your study career. We would like to invite you for the study start week (SSW), the introduction days before your courses start.

During these days, we will inform you about the program, the courses, the systems we use and other facilities. Next to the informative sessions, leisure activities will be organized for you to get to know the other students. You will be guided these days by NHL Stenden students (hosts), teachers and coordinators of the program.

Grab your tongs, put your sunglasses on and be prepared for a week filled with high temperatures. For all the new students of the IHM we have organised a week full of ‘Summer Vibes’ from 27th of august till 30th of august. For the theme party on the camping we expect to see you in your most outgoing summer outfit and ready to party!
