International professionals in tourism can make a big difference: the difference between profit and loss, between chaos and structure, a difference for the tourists as well as the local people. Organisations involved in tourism at tourism destinations are looking for well educated professionals. People, who are able to analyse, interpret and apply the global developments that take place and translate these into new opportunities and solutions.
