If I have to choose three words to describe the master in Tourism Management I would have to say: enlightening, because I did not have any experiences in this field and now I am more updated than many experienced workers of this sector; professionalism, the course is run by expert managers instructing us about real work situations and not just theory; interactive, slides and lessons are available on line in the useful Blackboard platform. I highly recommend it to those who want to be really competent in this field.
