MA in Tourism Management




What will I learn?

Budapest is one of the most exciting tourism destinations in the world and the number of international tourists, as well as students, is growing. As well as its beautiful heritage sites and Danube river views, the city is the only capital city in the world which has so many thermal baths or spas, it was nominated as City of Design by UNESCO Creative Cities Network, and the city offers a lively cultural scene and nightlife with its world-famous ’ruin bars’.

The MSc Tourism Management Programme combines a number of courses, which are especially designed to give students a strong foundation in global business and tourism, creative thinking and innovation, as well as Budapest-specific knowledge. For example, one course focuses on global health tourism combined with case studies of the Budapest thermal baths and spas. The Creativity City development course will examine global cities, but also Budapest’s City of Design status and creative quarter developments.
