Master in Tourism Tourism is one of the most fascinating fields of professional work. It captivates people worldwide, people who seek challenging tasks and a strong interactive dimension in an emotional and intercultural environment. While these industry attributes will continue to provide interesting touristic activities for management positions in the future, a strong trend towards more professionalization and specialization is occurring. Only with advanced credentials can one master the dramatic increase of technical, economic, and social developments which constantly confront touristic enterprises. Offers must be perpetually adjusted to customer needs in existing and new markets; business, management, and support processes must be enhanced or redefined by contemporary technology; and innovative ways must be found for the responsible use of resources.
