The Degree Programme in Tourism focuses on giving our 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 are also part of this degree programme.
Contemporary marketing, including eCommerce and product development, as well as various language and cultural studies have an important role in the degree programme. During the international study exchange, you have a possibility to broaden your specialisation areas through various study programmes of our many partner institutions abroad. This means specialisation, e.g. in some specific tourism-related areas such as Event Management. You are also encouraged to complete your practical training abroad, since it will give more perspective to your own expertise and offers an alternative way to gain more knowledge in the field of tourism.
In the future you might be working e.g. as an Experience Designer, Marketing Manager, Travel Coordinator, Event Manager, Project Manager, Entrepreneur or Travel Blogger.
