The Degree Programme in Tourism focuses on giving the students skills and knowledge required in the international tourism industry.
The main emphasis and specialisation area in the programme is Tourism Management and Experience Design.
We work in close connection with the local tourism business but give you
an option to have your training period or study exchange abroad, too.
Multicultural issues, languages and field-related core areas such as
service design and other business-related subjects are also emphasised
in this international programme.
Communication skills and sustainability, entrepreneurship, foresight and safety issues have also an important role because they have been defined in the strategy of MTI (Multidimensional Tourism Institute).
Contemporary marketing, including e-commerce and product development, and various language and cultural studies have also an important role in the degree programme. During international study exchange, students can broaden their specialisation areas through the various programmes of our many partner institutions abroad. This means specialisation, e.g. in some specific tourism-related areas like Event Management. Students are also encouraged to complete their practical training abroad, since it will give more perspective to their own expertise and offers an alternative way to gain more knowledge in the field of tourism.
Follow the fast track to get your degree!
In the autumn 2016 we will start our pilot project in which you can apply for the recognition of your previous skills and competences at the very beginning of your studies. In addition, if you are working at the same time with your studies it is possible for you to complete your studies in the working life through the process of pedagogisation of work. These options make it possible for you to finish your studies within 2–2.5 years.
