Scholarships granted for the Master in Tourism Destination Management
The World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), through the UNWTO.Themis Foundation, is granting scholarships for the Master in Tourism Destination Management to officials from National Tourism Administrations of UNWTO Member States who wish to strengthen their skills and gain practical experience on key areas of their responsibilities.
This blended Master course (starting 10 October 2011) will provide Senior Officials from National Tourism Administrations and Tourist Destination Managers with strategic guidance and practical tools to enhance the competitive edge of destinations and prepare them for responsible growth.
This course boasts the participation of professors from Cornell, Dartmouth, George Washington University, London Metropolitan College, University of California at Berkeley and, in order to best meet the needs and tight professional schedules of participants, 3 periods will be given on campus (2 in Granada, Spain and 1 in Amman, Jordan), and 2 will be online.
To reinforce the general management and leadership skills acquired in this program, world-class 3-day executive education courses have been organized in collaboration with IESE - Harvard in Madrid and INSEAD in Abu Dhabi. Though not a requirement for receiving the master degree, these courses play an important role in preparing students for a successful career in the highest levels of management, and will be taught on-campus in Madrid and Abu-Dhabi.
The UNWTO.Themis Foundation and the Euro-Arab Institute Foundation will be granting 17 scholarships (2 full grants and 15 partial (50%) grants) for this Master course that will commence on 10 October 2011 and will be taught entirely in English.
Those interested are to send a letter of motivation in English requesting the grant and a letter of nomination in English from the highest National Tourism Administration authority to firstname.lastname@example.org.
