It is not only receiving an increased interest from the public and private sector, but also from the academic and consultancy world. Tourism is one of the largest global economic sectors, which encompasses huge amounts of tourists and travellers. This development generates work and revenues for the destinations. Tourism is important because it influences people and places and in return tourism in itself is influenced by those surroundings.International professionals in tourism can make a big difference: the difference between profit and loss, between chaos and structure, a difference for the tourists as well as the local people. Organisations involved in tourism at tourism destinations are looking for well educated professionals. People, who are able to analyse, interpret and apply the global developments that take place and translate these into new opportunities and solutions.
