The Master’s in Innovation and Tourism Marketing is intended for people that are passionate about the culture of innovation, technology, and marketing applied in tourism organizations.

This program is appropriate for students who want to acquire or expand their knowledge with regard to setup and operations management aimed at innovation and marketing processes in the tourism sector.

Objectives

According to the latest issue of UNWTO World Tourism Highlights, international tourist arrivals in 2018 reached 1.4 billion, representing an increase of 5% over the previous year. International tourism represents 7% of the world's exports of goods and services. Tourism has grown faster than world trade for the past five years.  The travel and tourism industry provides 10% of employment, generating 339 million jobs around the world, and is expected to grow by over 4% per year in the next decade. Tourism involves other key sectors such as catering, events, entertainment, wellness, sport, and golf courses, among others, thus impacting majorly on labor supply. 

In conclusion, tourism has become one of the largest and fastest-growing economic sectors in the world and, therefore, its development is vital for the global economy. This development increases the demand for qualified professionals who are adapted to the reality of new productive structures and the changes in business management. In this sense, Spain, one of the most competitive tourism destinations, plays the role of the world leader in tourism development and research which makes it the perfect choice for students interested in the tourism industry.

The Master’s Degree in Innovation and Tourism Marketing aims to offer students the necessary theory and training to achieve, at the highest level, their personal and professional development in the tourism industry. Therefore, the main purpose of this Master’s is to empower each participant with strong leadership skills in an international and multicultural context in order to acquire knowledge and competencies about innovation, technology, and marketing, and the ability to apply them in real situations.

The curriculum -both theoretical and practical- is designed to provide students with essential knowledge and to ensure their professional careers. The theoretical section covers a wide range of courses on innovation and technology, marketing processes, branding, business models, and public management in the tourism sector. The practical section or internship comprises 150 hours and is developed with the collaboration of well-established companies and organizations.

Internship

UCAM’s career services will be available for the Master in Innovation and Tourism Marketing students including the SOIL – “Orientation and Work Placement Service” of UCAM, “Portal de Empleo” – the university’s employment portal – and the “Network of Recruiting Erasmus”, a service that promotes international students’ employment in top companies throughout Spain.

Career Opportunities

The theoretical knowledge and the practical training at the Master’s Degree in Innovation and Tourism Management enable students to access to the labor market, both in the private and public sectors.

Our postgraduates meet the demands of a wide range of professional profiles. The knowledge and skills training at the Master's allow students to occupy leading positions in tourism companies and/or public institutions, as well as to draw up their own business plans as entrepreneurs.

An internship is optional, as our students may search for their internships -in the country of their choice- with the assistance of the Master’s Coordinator. We always aim students to apply for an internship in recognized national or international businesses where there might be opportunities for future employment.
