O que eu aprenderei?

The Master of Science (MSc) in International Tourism and Convention Management programme is designed to develop students' knowledge and management skills in the tourism and convention industries, using a blend of strategic perspectives and pragmatic implementation.

Industry practice, management skills and research competencies will be developed through interdisciplinary subject exposure, problem identification, decision-making theory, and management application. Due to the global nature of the tourism and convention industry, an international focus is central to this programme, while still recognising the Asian context.
