Become an agent of change. The program is training a new generation of professionals who can confidently respond to future global sustainability challenges. Topics include stakeholder-specific implementation; public, private, and third sector implications; policy and governance-related issues; environmental and sustainable management issues, and economic development issues.
Expand your knowledge with a specialization. Optional specializations offer students the flexibility to acquire a deeper insight into areas such as Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Leadership, Innovation and Experience Design for Tourism, Sustainable Management and Governance, or Tourism and Services Management. In addition, students can take advantage of integrating a customized internship into their curriculum.
We challenge you to link theory with practice. Our students gain confidence through lively classroom debates and simulations which help remove sustainability from symbolic frames, challenging students to link theory directly with practice.
