Through the integration of scientific research, teaching and studying expectations of students, employees, prospective employers, and society in general are being met. Graduates of the present study program can be employed in the private sector (national and foreign institutions such as travelagencies, hospitality establishments, etc.) as well as in the public sector (ex. tourist organizations, information offices, development agencies, etc.).
