Master's Programs in Tourism and Hospitality. The process of globalization that has affected markets has led to a strong boost in the tourism product, extending the range of resources and requiring those who work in the field to be in possession of up-to-date professional abilities and increasingly developed managerial skills. Faced with a complex and competitive market, in a world in which consumers/tourists are becoming more demanding and require customized yet reasonably priced products, tourism businesses must comply with continuous cultural, organizational and managerial innovations. The hospitality sector must respond to the constant demand for improvement of service quality and be capable of measuring effectiveness and efficiency of the management systems in use, in a general perspective of growth and development. Managerial training has a fundamental role in the achievement of these goals and the Master in International Hospitality and Tourism develops specialized competencies by providing the tools and techniques necessary for professional practice, encouraging the development of a corporate culture that can render tourism a more competitive product offering and increase the quality of services. A student is granted a Master’s degree after successfully defending his or her final thesis in front of a panel of judges. Grading is based on a scale of 0-110; 66 is the passing grade and students who obtain full marks of 110 may also be awarded ‘summa cum laude’ (110 e lode). The final thesis of the Master’s program, intended to assess the technical, scientific and professional preparation and competences of the student, requires the completion, discussion and presentation of a written project work during the dissertation.

We will explore issues related to strategic behavior, and immediately explain the essential characteristics of business, assumed as a system that operates in a given environment in order to achieve the best conditions for its development; key corporate functions (organization, finance, marketing, the “operations” and innovation of product and process) will also be discussed.

We will explore strategic behavior, and key corporate functions (organization, finance, marketing, the “operations” and innovation of product and process). Organizational management aims to provide an insight into a complex and often contradictory subject area where the perspectives are as diverse as there are writers on the subject. We will also present the main issues related to the formulation of corporate strategy and its implementation in operational terms through the use of the four levers of the marketing mix: product, price, promotion and distribution. We will also focus on both leadership and change management providing learners with the foundations for examining and developing their own individual styles. The course investigates different kinds of leadership such as transactional, transformational, and distributed leadership. You will study the following: Fundamentals of innovation: notions and dynamics Organization of innovative processes in the national and international setting Innovational project management New product development and launch Management of innovative teams.
