Tourism is one of the largest and fastest growing economic sectors in the world. Its numerous sub-sectors (hotels and other types of accommodation establishments, restaurants, travel agencies, tourist transport, cruise companies, tourist animation, event management, guide services, rent-a-car, destination management organisations, etc.) provide wide opportunities for diverse career paths, fascinating work atmosphere and continuous discovery of new challenges and inspiration.
Students in Tourism Management Master Programmes study in a dynamic multicultural environment, develop specific competencies, leadership and decision-making skills to manage tourism businesses and to deliver unique experiences to tourists. They gain in-depth knowledge and skills about the managerial, marketing, operational, financial, human resource and cultural aspects of running a successful tourism enterprise. In addition, students learn about the management and marketing of tourist destinations; they understand that the successful development of a destination requires the coordinated actions of all tourism stakeholders.
Studying Tourism Management stimulates students to develop their own talents, be hospitable and tolerant towards other people.
