Program description

International Tourism and Leisure

Make a difference in the world of tourism and leisure. You are a digital native, with digital skills. You understand the traveller or customer, new business models, and the world of online distribution and marketing. You’re an intercultural communicator. You finished a degree in English and speak at least one other language. You are a global citizen, you’re international. Last but not least, you follow up on trends, and are able to deal with an ever changing context.

Practical experience, international know-how and personal development rule this program. The curriculum is built around a good blend of theory and practice. This enables you to learn on both the professional and personal level. Going international is key. You will learn the tricks of your trade in an international context during your internship overseas. Needless to say, these international experiences will help you build cultural awareness and become a globetrotter. Last but not least, the program ensures you are able to brand yourself in today’s digital economy.
