Berufsfeld / Zielpublikum
The Major Tourism provides this expertise and thus prepares graduates for the tourism labour market, either as responsible employees at middle management level in larger tourism businesses or as consultants. As a graduate of the Major Tourism, you will also have the necessary strategic knowledge in tourism to assess the potential of tourism, for example in destination management or regional development, and to be able to harness its impacts.
The interdisciplinary approach of the Master Tourism opens up a broad range of employment opportunities for graduates in destination management, tour operation, hotel management, tourism marketing and public relations and consultancy but some graduates also focus on the business administration part of the programme to gain employment outside of the tourism sector.
Schwerpunkte / Curriculum
The course provides you with a comprehensive understanding of tourism from a strategic perspective. This will allow you to recognise potential opportunities and associated risks in technological, social and environmental change and to define and implement the necessary actions to turn challenges into opportunities.
Praxisbezug / InternationalisierungInternational, strategic, applied
The master's degree in tourism enables you to gain an international outlook on tourism development and management. International case studies, an international student body, excursions to international destinations and the experience of your guest lecturers make for an interesting and interactive learning environment. We are the only university in Switzerland to have been accepted as a member of the international tourism master network. The ITMN is a global network of the leading tourism master programmes.
You will learn to identify, interpret and provide solutions for strategic challenges faced by tourism businesses and to make strategic judgements under uncertainty by relying on an in-depth understanding of change processes in tourism.
As a University of Applied Science, the relationship between studying, research and practice forms an important part of the programme.
