About The Blog

This blog is updated by Master’s Degree Programme in Tourism Marketing and Management. It is an information platform for our master’s degree programme. We will produce open and useful content in all our courses, teaching our students content creation in practice. We believe that information should be shared and hope that this blog is useful especially for tourism industry, particularly tourism businesses and destinations.

Master’s Degree Programme in Tourism Marketing and Management is not only about making money; we aim to make tourism better. Better for tourism businesses, better for tourists, better for environment and better for local communities. This is what we teach our students and this is what the students can do when they have finished our degree programme.
