In a highly competitive labor market, where solely formal qualifications are not sufficient for a successful professional career, the curriculum of the Department of Tourism is structured in such a way as to respond to the competitive and ever–changing conditions prevailing in the labor market. The needs of society, the demands of the labor market and the methodological tools are constantly evolving and specializing. The main goal in shaping the physiognomy of the Department is, therefore, to offer the required specialization, and at the same time, to enable graduates to adapt to the needs of society and the demands of the market under competitive conditions.
The philosophy of the curriculum reflects the nature and characteristics of the tourism industry and explores how it can be further promoted, managed and transformed by means of modern administrative tools and Information and Communication Technologies.
