    Job perspectives:

    The World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC, 2008) estimates that tourism's contribution to global economic activity and employment is expected to continue increasing over the coming ten years. Travel and tourism contribute to a number of important economic areas, these being:

    • Gross Domestic Product: In 2008, this was somewhere around 10% on average in receiving countries.
    • Employment: In 2008, around one in every eleven jobs was in tourism.
    • Exports: In 2008, export earnings from international visitors and tourism goods generated around 11% of total exports.

    These statistics are expected to grow until at least 2018 therefore tourism will play a major role in the world economy for many years to come. As a result there is a need for a qualified and professional workforce in all countries, especially at managerial level where important strategic decisions are made. The trend towards more sustainable and ethical forms of tourism, as well as the increasing need for crisis management means that employers and employees in tourism require more and more specialist training. This is what our MA in Tourism Management seeks to provide in the areas of tourism policy, development, planning, management and marketing, among others.

    The tourism industry encompasses a range of organisations from the public sector (e.g. local government), private sector (e.g. airlines, tour operators, attractions and hotel companies) and not-for-profit sectors (e.g. voluntary groups and charities), all of which have a diverse range of management styles and structures. Students will be prepared for work in all of these sectors through the acquisition of both general and tourism-specific business and managerial skills.

    There will be a growing need for graduates with MA in Tourism Management in English in Hungary too, since the both Tourism Development Strategy and the New Széchenyi Plan defines tourism and the related services as key areas in which Hungary will be developed. That means areas such as health tourism, destinations, EU bids or regional planning will need graduates who gained complex and global experiences and knowledge that they can adapt to local situations.

    Graduates with MA in Tourism Management will be qualified to enrol in a PhD programme either in Hungary or abroad.
