International Tourism is one of the most dynamic industries in the global world; it produces a constant flow of innovation combining creativity, technology and sustainability. Different disciplines play their role in theoretical analysis, and new perspectives come from society.
The course aims to reflect this changing nature of tourism. It will focus on emerging trends: new travel styles or expanding niches.
Frontal lecture, case studies and group work.
Students will prepare and discuss an individual paper/project work for each of the three modules held by the guest speakers, developing and deepening one aspect of the topic. The sum of the evaluations of such projects will determine the final grade.
