Master Tourism Management
The Master in Tourism Management (MA) offers an innovative and visionary approach in the study of tourism as both economic and social phenomena. Our view is that tourism has become an integral part of history, culture and economies for many regions of the world. This has had a powerful influence on identity, representation and business environments in developed as well as less developing nations.
On a global scale the World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) forecasts an increase in the number of international arrivals in the region of 1.6 billion by the year 2020. As such the industry needs people who understand the significance, complexity and dynamics of a diverse evolving, developing and growing sector. Our Master in Tourism Management recognises both the continuing importance and value of the global tourism industry in economic terms and the significance of its social, political and environmental implications.
Graduates are often fast-tracked into senior management, planning and development or consultancy positions with tourism-related organisations, both in Germany and overseas.
