Are you interested in tourism and sustainable development? Do you want to work with creating the tourism of the future? This Master’s program gives you in-depth knowledge about how to evaluate tourism and plan for future tourism from a sustainability perspective.
As a globally leading business industry, the tourism industry has to take responsibility for the planet’s limitations. This Master’s program Tourism and Sustainability provides you with an insight into the paramount challenges that face the tourism industry’s development and our world.
