Course Details

Tourism covers all the economic and social activities associated with tourism experiences, leisure and enjoying free time. Specialists in the field are responsible for extending the customer experience of their customers, either by direct contact, or by effectively managing hostages and staff involved in resorts or activities. They work in tourism and the tourism industry, organizing various events or sports and health centers. Travel professionals have a good understanding of sales principles, excellent communication skills and often speak more than one foreign language.

Students will use their previous courses and industry experience to broaden their adaptation to the practical and modern issues of tourism management, strategic and marketing and environmental issues, with the aim of training themselves as a tourism industry leader.
