Having developed very rapidly in recent decades, international tourism has become one of the world economy's major industries. In 2012 international tourism hit a record high as for the first time more than one billion tourists traveled internationally within one single year. According to the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) the tourism and hospitality industry is generating 9% of the global GDP and approximately 10% of total world employment. Yet, managing international tourism demands a serious commitment: it is challenging and one must take into account a variety of different economies, institutions, legal systems, languages and cultures. To strike a fair balance between the various elements at play - the tourist industry, the tourist, the local community, the environment - entrepreneurs and operators need to have an excellent grasp of several (even fairly disparate) disciplines, highly professional skills, a strategic and essential view of phenomena, with a strong sense of responsibility. This Master aims to be part of a new wide-ranging form of training that is strongly oriented towards a multidisciplinary approach in contents and methods by covering the following fields: - Economics and Management (of tourism, of tourist business, of culture, of territory and environment); - Communication (in tourism, tourism marketing, information technologies, and human sciences); - Politics, Institutions and International Relations.
