Program Description

The two-year full-time integrated European Master program aims at qualifying graduates to manage the huge challenges faced in contemporary tourism.

Through top-level, research-based education and the inclusion of multiple disciplines and paradigms concerned with the subject graduates will gain the required competences for developing and managing tourism in a sustainable manner.

The students study in three European countries: Denmark (Kolding), Slovenia (Ljubljana), and Spain (Girona). This gives them the opportunity to experience diverse educational, cultural, and social environments, and therefore to enhance their social competences.

The EMTM students will be rewarded the title: European Master in Tourism Management (EMTM).

The successful graduate will be able to apply for high-level Ph.D. programs or pursue a career in practice. Former students are invited to become a member of EMTM alumni.

Program Structure

The EMTM study starts at the beginning of September. All EMTM students meet in Kolding, Denmark spending their first term at the University of Southern Denmark. Then they move to Ljubljana, Slovenia for the second term. For the third term, students go to Girona, Spain. The fourth term is reserved for the completion of the master thesis.

EMTM is an integrated master program. Students build their competences in 3 consecutive steps: advanced conceptualization, policy design, and implementation and management, as illustrated in the figure below. All three levels of knowledge are integrated into the Master thesis.
