AAU’s Tourism MA degree draws on a wide range of perspectives from social science and humanities disciplines with a strong focus on critical thinking, analytical skills, teamwork, and creative problem-solving. The programme has an international outlook drawing on cases and examples from around the world.
A trademark of the Tourism programme - and Aalborg University - is its unique pedagogical model of teaching: the problem-based, project-oriented model. With this method, a large part of the semester teaching revolves around complex real-life problems that students investigate through group projects. This work process is supported by courses, literature and cooperation with firms and other organisations.
The Tourism MA opens many different career possibilities in the public and private sector, from marketing and communication to project management. The programme is flexible and allows you to tailor the education to your interests and career goals, through your choice of semester project and thesis topic and the option of an internship in a tourism organisation of your choice.
