Tourism is a relevant phenomenon of modern societies and an important economic reality worldwide. Studying tourism implies investigating the variety of motives and types of behavior as well as the multitude of agents organizing and offering the services against the background of political, social and economic realities. The Master in International Tourism seeks to respond to this challenge and offer a program with transversal and interdisciplinary approach on a university level. The goal is to achieve competence through academic discourse, disciplinary toolkits and a deeper understanding of the phenomenon.
