Master in Entrepreneurship & Tourism
The Entrepreneurship & Tourism Master’s degree offered by MCI aims to contribute to the professionalization of entrepreneurship in the leisure and tourism industry. The program incorporates current challenges faced by the industry to enable students to recognize and make use of the resulting opportunities for enterprises. It furthermore aims to create a general awareness of trends and current developments in international tourism. Two of the central processes currently affecting the industry are digitization and constantly changing consumer behavior.
The program provides students with well-founded theoretical knowledge as well as practical expertise. The encouragement of entrepreneurial thinking and action is considered a top priority throughout the course. This includes leadership skills, innovation skills, and intercultural competencies as required by the leisure and tourism industry. The students thus develop a holistic understanding of this dynamic sector. Together with international experts, they will reflect on questions of the national and international competitive power of companies and destinations. The interdisciplinary nature and practical orientation of the course ensures that the graduates are able to discuss relevant issues in reference to current developments.
The diversity of tourism and its overlaps with related subjects becomes particularly evident in the two focus areas which students are allowed to specialize in, according to their interests.
The Entrepreneurship & Tourism Master program targets graduates of relevant Bachelor’s degree courses as well as today’s and tomorrow’s executives intending to make an active contribution to the industry. The practical relevance and diversity of their education provides them with excellent career prospects.
This course is offered in both German and English.
