Some HTM career Stories

Flavia Curci, HTM13 

Sales Executive, Jumeirah Hotels & Resorts, Dubai, UAE

"My passion for tourism started three years ago, working for an Italian travel agency. Following my undergraduate degree in tourism, I applied for the HTM program to broaden my knowledge in tourism and hospitality management and to  find the business area that suited me best. After my 6-month internship as Guest Service Executive at Jumeirah Hotel in Dubai I was hired as Sales Executive.”

Elizaveta Prokopieva, HTM 13

Convention Office, Starwood Westin Palace, Milan

"I got my bachelor’s degree in International Economy at Stavropol State Agrarian University. After a work experience in the field of tourism and hospitality I realized it was the perfect career for me. HTM placed me in a 6-month internship at Westin Palace in Milan as Convention Office Trainee. Upon completion I was confirmed in the position and hired".

Nadia Uberti, MTM 12 

Restaurant Owner in Franciacorta, Italy

“After six months of classroom lessons, I did my internship in the commercial department of Château Monfort, a 5-star hotel in Milano. That experience allowed me to apply what I had learned in a real work situation. Currently, I am in charge of human resources in my family’s restaurant in Franciacorta. My future goal is to turn it into a holiday farm; all that skills I have acquired at the Master will be really useful!”

Valentina Licciardello, MTM11

Learning Coordinator at Four Seasons Hotel and Resorts, Dubai, UAE

“Talent matters! Thanks to MTM, I improved my ability to speak in public, manage stressful situations, and prioritize my daily agenda. I acquired a productive work/study method, something you don’t always learn at university. I always dreamed of an internship in human resources, and MTM provided that very experience in a leading international hotel chain – it launched my current position and a career abroad”.

Giorgio Kwiatkowski, MTM10

Executive Officer at BCD Travel, Meeting and Events, Milan, Italy

A challenging and exciting experience that demands your commitment and rewards you with a sense of accomplishment. My MTM experience gave me 6 months of compelling teamwork with new friends followed by a constructive traineeship in the company I am currently working for as fairs and sports division Travel Agent.”

Julia Davydova, MTM9

Sales and Marketing Manager at Select Holding LTD, Shanghai, China

"The Master helped me to develop time management skills due to strict projects deadlines. Critical thinking was boosted during the group works and brainstorming. Team-working improved my interpersonal skills and the ability to defend my personal point of view. I had my internship at the marketing department of Select Holding in Shanghai where I currently take care of the Eastern Europe market for Select Holding.”

Tina Kessler, MTM8

Director Revenue Driven Product Development at Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group, Brussels, Belgium

“The MTM experience was both exciting and challenging with students and professionals from completely different backgrounds.

Valentina Rigamonti, MTM7

Events Manager, SAP Global Events, Madrid, Spain

This six-month internship became a year contract as event organiser, supporting my manager in the coordination of big-scale events and also starting my own career as junior event manager. The Master was fundamental to my acquiring in-depth knowledge in the meeting industry field and to my gaining a wide background in different tourism areas such as hospitality, accounting, marketing and destination branding; essential assets in my daily and future professional work."
