WORKING IN TOURISM MEANS MUCH MORE

Higher education studies in tourism can bring you to places and jobs you’ve never dreamed of. Working in tourism means much more than just working in hotels or travel agencies. The industry covers almost everything that involves managing and providing a service. It means hospitality and travel, but also organising an annual congress for a recognised multi-national organization, managing the cargo of a maritime transport company or planning adventure trips.

And that’s just the start... Hotel Director, Specialist in designing and creating travel itineraries, Event, conference and congress coordinator, Revenue & yield management specialist , Customer service and PR, and many more!

Regarding the job opportunities offered by a degree in tourism, there is the mistaken but rather widespread idea that the jobs in this industry are limited to operational positions. However, sector companies are highly aware of the importance of the industry and how customers’ expectations have risen in recent years, which is why they are firmly committed to improving the conditions and professional development of their employees. For that reason, companies are becoming more demanding in terms of talent when recruiting and hiring candidates who are able to adapt and learn new tools.

This is great news for Tourism graduates, don’t you think?
