PRESENTATION

The Master’s Degree in Tourism and Communication is an innovative 2nd cycle course in tourism both at a national and at an international level. This Master’s Degree results from a partnership between ESHTE and the Institute of Geography and Spatial Planning | University of Lisbon that focus on the particularities and on the importance of tourism resources, marketing and tourism information.
