Tourism - an industry full of opportunities

The tourism industry employs around 100 millions of people around the world - including, of course, employees from international tourism groups to small service providers in holiday regions. As a matter of course, not all of these jobs are suitable for academics, but this industry still offers a large number of professional opportunities.

Cross-border travel accounts for 25 to 30 percent of world trade in the service sector. This does not only include holiday trips, but a large part also includes professional trips. A study or the following areas of work in the field of tourism should therefore under no circumstances be provided with descriptions á la “work where others go on vacation”. With the picture of working in sunny areas and holiday regions, which is often described in TV documentaries, tourism studies are only inadequately described.

Study structure and content

In Germany, there are many ways to start a course of study. Early school leavers begin the (mostly) six-semester undergraduate studies and then, after completing their studies, have the option to start a further master's degree or to enter the professional world. The missing master can then be taken up later, if desired, as a part-time course.

The specialty of studying in the field of tourism is that it consists of three different “lessons”. The course content must combine general business administration, general management theory and tourism science in order to prepare their students and future tourism managers for a successful career. Tourism management is a special management theory that deals with the particularities of the individual tourism companies and the management of these companies.

The study contents include:

  • Tourism marketing
  • Applied tourism management
  • Destination management
  • Tourism law
  • International Economics
  • Strategic Hospitality Management

Furthermore, other business sciences such as business administration, human resources management and controlling are taught.

    I am also interested in the approach of a vocational-qualifying training course with a Fachhochschulreife. Lt. the school is also a management and executive education in the field of tourism and hotel. The Swiss Tourism School offers something like this in an 3-year education. Was on an information evening of the school. What do you all mean?

      Thanks for the suggestion.
