In turn, the creation of value in a tourist destination can arise from the development of new products targeted toward specific market segments. In this master programme you will become an expert in the planning and magement of new products and destinations, and develop skills that will help you work in a number of areas, from the marketing of innovative tourism products to local economic development management.
This new master’s degree programme taught in English was established after observing a lack of supply of academic and professional training in Romania in the field of tourist destination management and in order to satisfy the need for skills and competences in tourism at international level.

- The opportunity to undertake internships and other practical training activities in Romania, Spain and Germany;
- The possibility to deepen their knowledge of English, as well as Spanish and German, by means of the inclusion of these three foreign languages in the curriculum;
