Local Expertise and International Research
Site visits to regional tourism destinations combined with research conducted at Dalarna University aim to give you applicable knowledge as to how sustainable destination development is implemented in Sweden and the world. Interaction with peers and staff from some 15 nations will expand both your professional network as well as your understanding of different cultural needs and values.
You will learn about assessing global changes in the tourism industry and interpreting these changes in a local situation. You will gain the ability to critically assess the consequences of different strategies for sustainable tourism destination development. These skills and this knowledge will help you join our many graduates who now work internationally as marketing and project assistants, service centre advisors and event managers.
Should you apply?
You should have a desire to combine your passion for sustainable tourism with a curiosity for the research and theory that drive the development of the global tourism industry towards sustainability. If you have previously majored in Tourism, Marketing, Business, Human Geography or a similar field, and have documented knowledge of spoken and written English, then you are a good candidate for this programme.
