The Emirates Academy of Hospitality Management (EAHM) in Dubai is one of the world's leading hospitality business management schools. As part of Jumeirah Group, a global luxury hotel company, EAHM is a leader in hospitality business education, and offers undergraduate and postgraduate degrees designed to develop future hospitality leaders. EAHM is home to approximately 300 students from 60 nationalities, thereby ensuring a high quality, multi-cultural experience.
Located in Dubai, a city globally recognized for its hospitality and tourism industry with the highest density of five-star hotels in the world, The Emirates Academy of Hospitality Management is opposite the Burj Al Arab, the world's most luxurious hotel, and Madinat Jumeirah, Dubai's Arabian five star resort. EAHM's proximity to these properties provide a truly exceptional experience, including the opportunity to study and intern with the Jumeirah Group. Students living in Dubai can enjoy an urban lifestyle while having access to beaches and desert getaways, and will experience what a top-notch tourism destination has to offer.
Students will take 5 courses worth 3 credits each, for a total of 15 semester credits. Students choose from an array of courses, such as Strategic Management, Service Operations Management, Food and Beverage Business and Leadership, among others.

. Endicott students will receive all EAHM textbooks and academic materials as part of their tuition.
EAHM students, and by extension, Endicott students, are expected to conduct themselves in the appropriate manner while in the classroom. Classroom rules will inevitably vary, yet regardless we expect Endicott students to represent our university and the School of Hospitality Management in a professional manner. Below are examples of what EAHM, and Endicott, expects of our students:
Students are expected to assist in maintaining a classroom environment that is conducive to learning. Therefore, students are expected to respect the classroom and their classmates by: being on time, turning off their cell phones and computers, and not distracting others by: leaving the class early, doing homework, reading newspapers, chatting during the class, sleeping in the class, eating in the class, or in any way unnecessarily distracting fellow students from their purpose for being in class. Students should also respect the opinions of others, and use proper language. Guests are not allowed in the class. Inappropriate behaviours in the classroom shall result, minimally, in a request to leave class.
Attendance is very important in this course. Classes will begin promptly at the designated time and regular and punctual class attendance is expected. As stated in the EAHM Catalogue, students missing 3 classes will be withdrawn failed from the course.

The Student Council at EAHM plans social events for all students to provide a balance between studies and play. Examples of their events include a Welcome Back BBQ, EAHM Lip Dub, Movie Nights, and EAHM Master Chef. All students are encouraged to join.
Students studying in the United Arab Emirates are required to obtain a student visa. Students will work with EAHM to have their visa secured at no charge, but will, however, need to pay 180AED (approximately $50) for an Emirates National ID upon arrival. Students should contact their EAHM representative to begin this process, or call or email the Office of International Education at Endicott for the appropriate contact information.
