THE STUDY PROGRAMME
Our International Tourism Management master’s degree is a full semester workload taught in English (semester 10 / 30 ECTS) - with double diploma possibilities with Bicocca Milano, URJC Madrid, HHeilbronn-, up-to-the-minute mix of specialist lectures, interactive seminars and case-studies in real-life projects for major tourism operators.
*(Semesters 7 and 8 are taught in French + English +German/Italian/Spanish, semester 9 is spent abroad)*
The courses evolve to integrate a reinforced specialisation over the semesters. The courses are organised around four domains: fundamental courses in management, two foreign languages, research and consulting, and specialised courses.
The first year begins with transversal management courses to gradually move towards more courses. The first year of the programme is devoted both to fundamental disciplinary lessons and to expert lessons related to tourism. The second year of the programme is almost exclusively devoted to specific exerptise.
The curriculum also offers courses in research and consulting methods in order to develop abilities to consider a problem, to review literature, conceptualise and build a research approach, to collect and analyse data, as well as present results.
All the courses have an actual professional approach thanks to a consulting project throughout the year of Master 1 and a 6-month internship in Master 2 semester 10.
The international dimension is particularly important in the International Tourism master. Good command of two foreign languages is required: English, as semester 10 is entirely taught in English, and German / Spanish / Italian - which will be replaced by French as a Foreign Language classes for international students during semester 10. Semester 9 is a semester abroad for USMB students, who study at ITMN partner universities.
