This industry-ready course, designed alongside some of the very best minds in luxury, aims to strengthen your leadership and management skills, equipping you with the tools, insights and network to lead, manage and inspire others in the luxury hospitality sector. 

Developed in collaboration with distinguished hospitality partners, this curriculum has been purpose-built to address the practical challenges, and opportunities, presented at the forefront of this exclusive industry: from business strategy to change management. 

Through hands-on industry mentoring ‘on the job’ and meaningful academic reflection, you’ll advance your emotional, institutional and technical intelligence – enabling you to confidently make judgements, take risks, handle crises and be resilient to change.  

You’ll have five residential weeks on campus in London, where you’ll join masterclasses, leadership labs, industry workshops and networking sessions – and go behind the scenes at renowned London destinations, exploring cutting-edge ideas from all aspects of luxury. 

Learning part-time enables you to fuel your curiosity and enhance your skillset while continuing to work in your current role – reflecting and applying your learning practically. You'll also complete interactive modules, which can be tailored to suit your professional and personal goals, and work on a major project or thesis – building something that’ll have a tangible and lasting impact on your workplace. 

You’ll graduate from Regent’s as part of an elite group of leaders – ready to lead, shape and influence the future of luxury hospitality.

This course is subject to validation.
