What's in store for you

You’ll study in a dynamic and international environment with students and lecturers from every continent about the effect of tourism on different cultures, the environment and about the economic interests involved. You work in small groups on the development of new tourism products and responsibly create unique experiences for all. Naturally, you also learn about the latest trends in international tourism and build a strong foundation in product innovation, responsible entrepreneurship, online and offline marketing and management. You also have the opportunity to learn a second foreign language.

The professional field   

There is nothing more important than experiencing the industry through the eyes of a consumer and understanding the theory through the eyes of a specialist and receiving feedback directly from the field. The Tourism Management programme  organises several inspiring guest lectures, excursions and international fieldtrips. You will also gain insight into the professional field by working on projects from actual clients. For instance, you will be helping clients in the tourism sector to promote a tourist destination, greening a holiday park or making a tourism attraction appealing for a particular target group.
