In the Tourism degree, students complete a university of applied sciences Bachelor degree qualification in Hospitality Management.

The aim of the degree is that students become experts capable of multidisciplinary cooperation in tourism. The overriding themes of the degree are the development of creativity, responsible tourism entrepreneurship, international competence and self-knowledge as well as adventure in tourism product development.
