Hospitality – Travel – Tourism Industry

Tourism Management is a study programme which prepares students to work in the dynamic tourism industry in sectors like hospitality, travel and tourism. The course will give you the knowledge and understanding how tourism businesses operate, how tourists behave and what impact tourism has on countries, cultures and the environment. It also helps to develop a wide range of skills that can be applied to a variety of managerial and entrepreneurial roles in the expanding tourism industry. The programme particularly emphasizes the cultural and political aspects of tourism, its special models in different societies and its impact on the regional and global economy. It also prepares students to plan a wide range of tourism activities and manage tourist products considering existing circumstances and conditions.

Our programme consists of 2 kinds of modules: compulsory modules and elective modules. Compulsory modules provide the fundamental knowledge and skills while elective modules allow to deepen the understanding of particular tourist-related phenomena and to develop personal interests and professional skills. To gain some more practical experience, students participate in workshops and tourist events.

Key issues and competencies:

  • Tour operating
  • Hotel management
  • Hotel marketing
  • Country and Regional marketing
  • Geotourism & Ecotourism

All the programme takes 6 semesters (180 credits). To complete the programme, students must write an individual or group thesis, which relates to their interests and chosen career path. Full programme schedule is available here.
