Tourism comes with economic benefits, opportunities and threats for the businesses in and habitants of a tourism destination. In the Tourism Destination Management programme at Breda University of Applied Sciences (BUAS), you will learn how to develop strategies for responsible socio-economic growth.
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.
Knowledge of the tourism destination
It is expected that a shift of power will take place from the tour operators in the areas of origin towards the suppliers of tourism products and services at the destination. This requires knowledge and expertise, which is closely interwoven with the destination areas themselves.
The Master Tourism Destination Management is designed to contribute to this, focusing on practice, perspectives and policies of tourism management at destinations.
Study at four locations in the world
This programme offers you the opportunity to study at four different locations in the world. This way you will get many intercultural experiences and in-depth knowledge of tourism destinations.
Each destination finds itself in a different stage of development. You will carry out research at three different destinations in Australia and South-East Asia. In previous years destinations were: Indonesia, Singapore, Australia, Myanmar, Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand, Sri Lanka, and Fiji.
Graduates of the Master Tourism Destination Management are entitled to the degree of Master of Arts and qualified for international policy and advisory positions, international management positions and research positions.
