About

International professionals in tourism can make a difference. A difference between profit and loss, between chaos and structure, a difference for tourists as well as locals. The tourist industry at tourism destinations is looking for well educated professionals. In this professional master’s Tourism Destination Management at the Breda University of Applied Sciences (BUAS) you learn to analyse, interpret and apply global developments and translate these into new opportunities.

Tourism has developed into a dynamic and fast growing sector, creating an interdisciplinary field of study and research. The tourism industry offers economic benefits, growth and opportunities for people and businesses in destination areas. At the same time, matching demand - from tourists in the areas of origin - and supply - at the tourism destinations - remains a challenge.
