Learning Environment of the Degree Programme in Hospitality, Tourism and Experience Management, Haaga campus

The learning, teaching and pedagogical approaches in the programme have been constructed in an innovative manner. Students are challenged to improve and develop businesses providing experiences, especially in hotels, restaurants and tourisms businesses. Modules of the programme will be conducted via one or more of these learning approaches:

  • Blended learning – which involves a mixture of classroom learning with delivery media, experiential instructional methods, and web-based technologies
  • Project –based learning – using “real life” projects
  • On-the-job-learning – which occurs while students engage in their daily work (learn by doing) and later on reflecting on their experiences
  • On-line learning – using online resources to facilitate information sharing outside of constraints on time or place
  • Entrepreneurial or Cooperative learning – which occurs while students engage in the development of their own business

These forms of learning bring diversity that is an important part of Haaga-Helia's learning experience. Students work in small teams and develop innovative solutions for industry-based ‘real’ problems/opportunities. Students will be able to understand how to assess customer value and how to gain competitive advantage through it whilst balancing economic gains with ethics and ecology. The ability to succeed in teamwork with a multicultural group of students is a key component of the program's measure of success.
