    Tourism is one of the main sectors of economic activity in Spain. It is also the sector with the best prospects for future development, and as such, tourism management offers numerous opportunities for professional development.

    Despite the importance that “sun and sand” tourism holds, the cultural and natural segment is growing constantly, benefiting from the wealth and diversity of Spain’s natural and cultural assets.

    In this context, the Master’s in Tourism Management aims to educate professionals and researchers who are able to tackle the difficult challenge of developing and managing tourist activities and resources, especially those based on nature and historical heritage.
