The Degree Programme in Aviation and Tourism Business has two paths: Aviation and tourism, and it leads to a Master’s degree in Hospitality Management. The programme consists of 90 credits.

It is based on a 210 cr Bachelor’s degree. The programme prepares students to take on diverse professional tasks, for example, organisational development and management. It also assists students in their quest for life-long learning and professional skills that function as a foundation for professional growth.

The Degree Programme in Aviation and Tourism Business is based on the future needs of the aviation and tourism industries with a focus on customer-orientation, globalisation, continuous change and sustainability.

The programme is planned especially for experts in travel agencies, tour operating, transportation, travel management and tourism organisations.

The goal is to raise the know-how of an expert to a developer level. The emphasis is on anticipation, design thinking and responsibility in the aviation and tourism businesses and on learning to cope with change.

Eligibility to apply to the Master level degree programme requires a Bachelor’s (or a higher) degree in an equivalent field and at least three years (36 months) of relevant work experience to be completed after finalizing the Bachelor degree.

Work Experience

Any work experience must have been obtained no later than 31 July 2017 for the spring application period. Work certificates must have a start and an end date of employment and a brief job description. If the applicant has worked part-time, the work certificate must clearly indicate the number of work hours per month. Part-time work will be converted into full-time equivalents such that 150 hours or 20 full working days (at least 7 hours per day) correspond to one month of work. Work experience does not have to be continuous or obtained working for the same employer. Work experience will only be accepted if it is verified by a certificate provided by the employer.

Entrepreneurship will be accepted as work experience if an applicant can produce a certificate attesting that he or she is or has been covered under the statutory YEL or MYEL pension scheme for entrepreneurs. No periods of practical work placements or on-the-job learning included in a degree used to apply will be counted towards work experience. Military or non-military national service or child-care leave will not be counted towards work experience. The amount of work experience points awarded for simultaneous employment relationships may not exceed the amount awarded for full-time employment. Those who are applying with a qualification completed outside Finland must submit work certificates by 31 January 2017 at 15:00.
