In this Tourism Management programme at Saxion University of Applied Sciences, you will explore other cultures and countries in an international setting, learn how to transform a location into a popular tourist destination and create commercial products that appeal to tourists! You will become an expert in destination development, event management, hospitality and responsible tourism. 


Key facts

The Tourism Management programme at Saxion University of Applied Sciences relates directly to issues and developments within the industry. You will work on real life business cases and learn to recognize opportunities, taking into account both people and nature. You will know exactly what travelers want, how you create the best experience for them and how you provide hospitable service.

After graduation 

Tourism is changing rapidly. Traditional positions such as product manager at a tour operator or staff member at a resort still exist. But there are plenty of new opportunities in many different areas. You could be hired by local councils or consultancy agencies to redevelop regions. You could also start your own business, work for one of the innovators in the industry or for an online platform.

Job opportunities in Tourism Management​

The options are endless: you could become a hospitality manager for an airline, an independent travel advisor, a product manager for an online travel organisation, a holiday resort manager, a marketing or customer experience consultant for an agency, a government tourism advisor or an entrepreneur who shakes up the industry. Tourism Management graduates will also easily secure jobs at some of the relatively new organisations, offering online platforms, such as Airbnb or Skyscanner.

In short, Tourism Management graduates are highly valued in roles where particular target groups need to be reached, and where hospitality and technological know-how are essential skills, both inside and outside the tourism sector!
