Master in Service Design for Sustainable Tourism

IED – Istituto Europeo di Design Cagliari

The idea of sustainability - in its larger meaning related to environment, society, and economics - became more and more relevant. Nowadays we are pretty close to Kyoto protocol goals (2020) and the Italian context of green economy brings an added value of more than 102 billions euro, equal to 10,3% of the Italian economy. One company on 5 has a sustainable policy and tourism follows this trend too. Sustainable design specialists are more and more demanded by the market, especially in combination with a design made in Italy.

Within this framework, the Master aims at training a new manager able to handle and create the necessary services for a sustainable tourism.

Professional opportunities - Graduated can be employed in the tourism industry as key players to define and develop sustainable strategies, from renowned hotel chains to the newest accommodation formulas - emphasizing the features of a territory, from tourism services to mobility.

The Master trains highly specialized professionals, carrying competences in the field of sustainability and relevant sectors – a green economy, blue economy, sharing economy - and a transversal approach matching communication, management, and design. This professional belongs to green job category and enters the market either as first employment or as requalification.
