In 2019, we organize the 11th edition of the European Mise en Place Cup (EMCup), our annual competition between 38 leading European Hotel Management Schools. The main goals of this competition are:

  • Building a bridge between hotel management schools and the industry
  • Connecting young professionals to the industry
  • Creating and building long-lasting relationships
  • Providing hands-on experience for students

This year 40 European hotel management schools participate with a team of 5 students and 2 coaches. This year, the theme is ‘Get Real Education – Old School versus New School’ where we challenge students to re-design the curriculum of the European Hotel Management Schools. Prior to the competition days, each team prepares multiple assignments. During the competition days (February, Maastricht), the students pitch their ideas and findings in various rounds in front of the business jury. This business jury is composed of international hotel chains who send one HR representative and one operational representative not only to assess these students, but also to cherry pick the best students for your companies. The competition is a great recruitment tool for you.

To get a good impression what the competition is about, please watch last years aftermovie and have a look in next years brochure:
