The Master of Science in Tourism Management & Business Administration is developed in 3 semesters of study, lasting 13 weeks each. In the first two semesters, students attend a total of 10 courses (i.e., 5 courses per semester), while in the third semester they prepare their dissertation. Each course lasts 3 teaching hours and corresponds to 6 ECTS credits. The dissertation corresponds to 30 credits of the ECTS system. The Master studies corresponds to 90 credits of the ECTS system.
The participation of postgraduate students in seminars, workshops, meetings, conferences, educational trips and visits to relevant workplaces is also foreseen. The offered courses as well as their content are – as long as necessary – the subject of an annual update by the Assembly of the Department, so that the provided study program corresponds over time to the interdisciplinary developments of both the Management of Tourism Enterprises & Organizations, as well as the labor market.
The main language of the courses in all their forms (theory, exercises, laboratories, exams, etc.) is Greek. This also applies to the dissertations. However, it is possible to teach entire or individual courses in the English language, as well as the preparation of assignments and final written exams in the same language. It is also possible to prepare a dissertation in English, either in whole or in part, if the students so wish. Consequently, students they must know the English language very well.
