The Master Curriculum
In our master programme, eTourism is very research orientated.
Students get an introduction in eTourism in the 1st semester and write a proposal for a groupwork, which will be relevant for the 2nd semester. This is characterized by literature research for the specific topic, followed by an empirical analyis in the 3rd semester. At the very end, student groups hand in a scientific paper. Some of those were already presented at international conferences or published in academic journals.
Students can use our eTourism-Lab for trying out and analyzing future technologies, altering the tourism industry. For those staying in the tourism industry, this lectures trains you to ask precise questions and to find ways of propperly solving them. Your analytical thinking is trained, a gift you need in higher management positions. This lectures should also lay the basis, if you probably want to continue a scientific carrer.
