MBA in Tourism - We Create the Elite of Managers!


The growing importance of specialized MBA programs for senior management means the necessity to develop educational offers which go beyond meeting the needs of the IT, HR and financial sectors.

MBA in Tourism is the first specialized graduate course in Poland, conducted entirely in English, which covers not only such classic MBA subjects as leadership, ethics, accounting, marketing, and management, but also explores contemporary and innovative strategies and trends in the tourism industry.

The MBA program focuses on the pragmatic use of the above aspects for business projects developed not only in tourism - one of the fastest growing sectors in the contemporary business environment – but also in any other business sector.

MBA covers 5 semesters (20 months) and has practical credit framework.

Apart from traditional classes, the program also includes:

  • online video-consultations on a one-to-one basis
  • group projects, interactive classes in international group
  • independent work under the supervision of an expert moderator
  • a personal meeting with the American lectures, held at least once a year

Classes are held in English and are modular in structure, so that participants can easily combine studies and work, focusing on learning those aspects of the industry that interest them most and analyzing real-life business projects.

The program MBA has been based on three pillars – knowledge, competence, skills and attitude - which guarantee high-quality professional competencies sought after in the tourism industry. See the description of the three pillars below.
