ITA – International Tourism Academy for advanced studies

Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Business Management – Tourism and Hotel Management

Our top-up concept is aimed at people with qualifications from previous training or academic courses who now wish to obtain a bachelor’s degree with 180 ECTS in one year.

This type of bachelor’s degree course allows you to continue working while you study and so remain financially independent. The focus is on increasing competence and transferring skills and knowledge to your working life – through learning based on case studies.

Our blended learning format combines the advantages of online distance learning and on-site studies. Online studies with e-learning and webinars on our learning platform are complemented by application-oriented on-site phases which generally take place at weekends.

YOUR BSC WITH 180 ECTS RECOGNISED ALL OVER EUROPE IN 2 SEMESTERS

As a graduate of an Austrian tourism college you are considered as already having 120 ECTS – this means you go straight into the 3rd year of the bachelor’s degree programme. Our study programme is run with the cooperation and support of the TRIAGON Academy. This means that although you study in Austria you benefit from the international standing of our partner. Consequently, the top-up bachelor’s degree in tourism and hotel management (with 180 ECTS) is an academic title with full international recognition and accreditation that entitles the holder to go on and do a master’s degree.

ORGANISE YOUR STUDIES FLEXIBLY AROUND YOUR JOB

Our top-up bachelor’s degree is the ideal course to pursue alongside your job. Whether you carry on working during the course has no bearing on your matriculation. The principal advantages of degree courses that can be pursued while working are no loss of earnings and the opportunity to write off course fees against tax.

COMBINED ADVANTAGES OF ONLINE DISTANCE LEARNING AND ON-SITE STUDIES

Your studies will be in the blended learning format: the advantages of online learning (studying whenever and wherever you like) using e-learning and webinars on our learning platform are combined with the application-oriented on-site phases (generally at weekends).

BLOCKED STUDY UNITS FOR BEST POSSIBLE STUDY PROGRESS

You go through one complete course module before the next one starts (modules). This means you can concentrate fully on each topic.

COURSE CONTENT WITH HIGH PRACTICAL RELEVANCE

The possibility of immediately applying what you have learned guarantees knowledge transfer into your professional practice. Our project-based learning approach is characterised by the high practical relevance of the programme content. We offer you the chance to relate your studies and project work to your job.
