MAD Academy’s programs are open to anyone pursuing a career in hospitality.

There are two categories of applications: regular enrollment, for students who will pay the costs of their participation; and scholarship, for students who need the costs of the program covered for them.

We believe that driving positive change in our industry should be a mutual commitment between organizations like ours, business owners, and people working in hospitality. We therefore urge employees applying to MAD Academy to first seek financial support from their employers and encourage those who cannot otherwise fund their tuition costs to apply for a scholarship.

Regular enrollment | DKK 37,500 plus Danish VAT
Fee includes instruction, course materials, and all meals during school hours. Flights to Copenhagen, accommodations, and pocket money are not included in the fee.

Scholarship enrollment | Our scholarships are intended to ensure that no one who would benefit from a MAD education is turned away for lack of funds. In 2022 we plan to award over 200 scholarships, and hope to increase that number in the future.
