Bachelor in International Tourism Management

For the right start in the global tourism industry

The tourism industry is truly international, and this programme responds to its needs. Take advantage of the chance to stay abroad for two semesters and to do a double Bachelor degree.

You will become an expert in analysing and meeting the expectations of leisure and business travellers. The ITM programme allows you to specialise in business and holiday travel, tour operator management, sustainable tourism, marketing and sales and destination management.

Our students and faculty are from all over the world, so you can discover different cultures, countries and people in and outside of the classroom. Two semesters abroad at one of our partner universities and an internship allow you to create your own academic and professional  journey. This TedQual-certified double-bachelor programme gives you two bachelor degrees in just seven semesters. By combining a bachelor in Germany with one abroad, you increase your international employment opportunities.

The four core elements of the curriculum are:

  • Business economics: Business courses form the basis of the programme. They include  mathematics, statistics, integrated service management, and finance & accounting.

  • Professional skills: Foreign languages, computer training and business communication courses round out the student profile and improve employability.
  • Study abroad: A year spent studying abroad at one of our partner universities is an important feature of this programme. Besides improving your foreign language skills, a stay abroad provides a valuable academic and intercultural education. When you complete the sixth semester you'll receive a Bachelor degree from the partner university. This is an key element in this global industry.

Courses are in lecture and seminar format with an average of 30 students per class. This encourages dialogue between professors and students.
