European Master in Tourism Management

Curriculum

EMTM study starts in Esbjerg, Denmark, at University of Southern Denmark. All students meet at the end of August for introductory programme and first EMTM study term. Then they move to Ljubljana for the second term, and then to Girona for the last, third term together. Fourth term is reserved for master research, which can be carried out at any of the participating Universities.

EMTM is an integrated master programme. Student build their competences in 3 consecutive steps: conceptualisation, instrumentalisation and implementation, as illustrated in Figure. Integration of all three levels of knowledge is done in Master thesis. Further, the programme is integrated through the concept and practice of sustainable tourism in almost all of the courses in order to increase the ability of future tourism managers to meet the needs of the enterprise, or destination and its stakeholders today while protecting, sustaining, and enhancing human and natural resources into the future.

Students’ knowledge is assessed based on classical exams and project assignments. All courses are taught in English.
