Therefore, prospective students should show a general interest in tourism as a whole as well as in the innovative aspects of marketing, creativity and design of tourism products, communication, distribution and new technologies applied in this sector. Spain is a world power in the tourism industry with extensive experience in research and development, that has allowed us to build up a wealth of knowledge, which we feel urged to share and educate on.

This ambition requires a deep understanding of individual markets and customers, calls on its stakeholders to be creative, to keep abreast of changes in popular culture, to grasp the latest technological developments and to be able to put them to profitable use.

It is also important to note, the recognized growth areas and creative practices in universal standards Management, establishing an exact balance between planning (anticipate) and design (creative solutions to immediate hobble). While it can be considered rigid and methodological areas of image management and direction could not live with the creative and artistic image of the areas of Design, now is not, yes they can. Creative Design areas require more than any other, a methodological process of project development, and management and administration of resources and skills, to articulate to the hard areas of Management as the latter need them. The Master in Project Development and Product Innovation, has a combined academic structure between theoretical issues and practical exercises through individual and group exercises, and workshops for reflection on design processes projects. This allows then properly structure the work of creatives and designers, providing training on current management tools, without this conflict with the creative process.
