International Leisure Management

Course Characteristics

The International Leisure Management programme is delivered thematically. This means that subjects such as economics, psychology, management, communication and market research are dealt with in content-related projects, rather than in separate topics. Examples of modules are: Project management, Leisure basics, Leisure direction, Event Organisation, Imagineering and Marketing and Communication.

The regular track of this programme takes four years, but Dutch students with a vwo diploma can be fast tracked. This may also be available to foreign students, depending on their previous education.

The International Leisure Management programme is also offered in Dutch. The Dutch name is Vrijetijdsmanagement. NHTV also offers a three year academic programme in Leisure, International Leisure Studies (BSc).

Behind the scenes

When you visit a venue, you are not always aware of the work that has gone on behind the scenes. Twice a year, you will get the chance to take a look backstage during the backstage field trips. You will be asked to find a solution to a problem that the organisation you are visiting faces.
