The bachelor study course at the HTW Chur places value in a comprehensive training in tourism with focus on international tourism and leisure-time management. Three full-time classes are taught each year, whereby two cases are taught in both German and English and one class only in English.
The study concept is oriented towards practically useful career qualifications. The overall objective is development of leadership competency. In order to gain this, competency is required in management, expert knowledge and methodology. This competency is provided in a modular system from a didactic and content point of view during the three year study course.
Tourism is an international growth industry with a continually increasing demand for professionalism. Students graduating from the tourism study course have a sturdy basis to face these challenges and are characterised by a high degree of customer-orientation and service commitment. They find positions in expert and leadership functions in local and international travel, leisure, transport, event and sport corporations where they develop and market new products, organise cultural and sporting events or manage whole tourism destinations.
The study course «Bachelor of Science FHO in Tourism» is recognised by the Swiss Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs, Education and Research (Eidg. Volkswirtschaftsdepartement).
