About

The Tourism and Sustainable Management degree at the CBS International Business School is a joint programme conceived by the Department of International Tourism Management (ITM) and the Center for Advanced Sustainable Management (CASM) to explore the complexities of putting tourism business development alongside sustainable growth.

Overview

Tourism is data-driven. Therefore, in the third semester, you will explore cutting-edge topics like big data and the cloud, analyse data in research classes, and observe how the strengths of traditional sales channels like e-commerce and mobile are combined for omnichannel commerce. To do so, current trends and issues in the tourism industry will be discussed in-depth. CBS’ MA Tourism Management degree will ensure that you will obtain the knowledge and skills that employers are looking for.

For example, hospitality and event management is the art of providing copious amounts of guests with a seamless, perfect experience – an experience which is orchestrated by hundreds of people working smoothly in the background. CBS’ MA Tourism Management degree will teach you the necessary expertise required to improve your skills in:

  • Intercultural team management
  • Self-management
  • Project management

Career Prospects

Students find that the Tourism and Sustainable Management degree at the CBS International Business School is different from other tourism degrees elsewhere not only because it is taught entirely in English, but because of the open classroom concept. Students and lecturers from all over the world come together to discuss issues of sustainable tourism in class and outside of class. Rather than a top-down approach to teaching, we adopt an integrated classroom in which the discussions inform the complexities of the problem. After which students will have the opportunity to put some of these discussions into practice at conferences, trade fairs, exhibitions, museums, demonstrations, business simulations, study trips, and cultural projects both in Germany and abroad.
