In the first year, we give students a general but solid introduction into the exciting world of Business Management. The idea is that, if students do not understand the basic principles of modern management, how could they understand the complicated area of tourism? If, for example, they cannot interpret a statistical chart/graph, how can they appreciate the trends in the tourism industry? All subjects taught in the first year aim at aiding the student to shed light on the ‘grey’ areas in the rather demanding and competitive environment of the 21st Century.

World tourism and its developments are tackled and comparative studies of different countries are carried out.
