International Tourism Management
ATTENTION: This study program can no longer be chosen. It was offered last in winter semester 2018/19.
As a tourism manager you can certainly explore the glamorous world of luxury hotels, cruise ships and tropical islands, and obtaining the skills and knowledge to do that I can get at Karlshochschule. After that I'll be able to work in management for airlines, luxury hotels or cruise shipping companies.
As well as that, I can gain experience of being a professional tourism manager from an anthropological and philosophical point of view, which brings a whole new perspective to the concept of "travel". As you know, travel has become a part of our daily lives. Even if simply visit a museum or go to the movies, I'm still basically a tourist. And when I use the Internet to offer tourists my couch to sleep on, I get a whole new range of intercultural perspectives and effectively travel myself.
So in other words, this study program expands my views on travel and puts tourism under a critical spotlight, and especially with regard to its environmental and social impacts. I won't just study the traveler's point of view, but also those of the locals and the travel companies. In fact, I imagine my journey has already begun, and it's definitely going to be an exciting trip. It's one of the reasons I've chosen this degree course in International Tourism Management at Karlshochschule.
