The RUN-EU Short Advanced Programme (SAP) ‘Ethics & Values in Hospitality and Tourism Management’, is jointly organised by the NHL Stenden University of Applied Sciences (NHL Stenden), and the Technological University of the Shannon (TUS).

The programme aims to foster a critical understanding of ethical research in hospitality management and provides experiential learning opportunities.
