Tourism and its related business activities belong to the most important factors of the world economy. Surprisingly, this is highly underestimated because the complexity of tourism does not allow for quantitative perception and real economic relevance. 

The Master of Business Administration - International Tourism Management at the Hochschule Bremen - International Graduate Center offers resourceful, entrepreneurial, innovative and global networking competence.

This is achieved by qualified teaching staff, an international and diverse student body, a faculty which provides a unique environment for intellectual exchange, joint research combined with academic excellence, practical orientation and an in-company internship. The course provides students with a competitive advantage in securing a career in the tourism industry.

Career opportunities

Graduates are capable of and committed to promoting a responsible and sustainable tourism beneficial to all sectors of society. The international study group opened the students‘ minds for the wide fields of employment worldwide and tourism‘s contribution to the mutual understanding and respect between people and societies. Tolerance and sensitivity for the diversity of cultures is the precondition for the development of sustainable tourism business, in which our graduates find their adequate role.
