Die Tourismusbranche gewinnt weltweit immer mehr an Bedeutung und vor allem die Kreuzfahrt ist in den letzten 20 Jahren stetig gewachsen. Die Kreuzfahrtschiffe werden immer größer und durch die vielfältige Ausstattung mit Kartbahnen oder Riesenwasserrutschen zunehmend selbst zur Destination. In dieser lukrativen Branche zu arbeiten, erweckt bei Vielen großes Interesse, weshalb der Studiengang Cruise Tourism Management entwickelt wurde. Da kaum eine Branche so international ausgelegt ist wie der Tourismus, findet das Studium vollständig auf Englisch statt. Aus diesem Grund werden auch die Beschreibung des Studiengangs sowie alle Einzelheiten in englischer Sprache folgen. So let’s start!

The course Cruise Tourism Management aims to educate and qualify young people for management positions in the tourism and cruise sector – a constantly growing market! It is a unique 4-year undergraduate programme leading to the Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree. The course is taught in English and involves studies in the area of business administration, tourism and cruise travel as well as basic finance classes. One integrative component is a year abroad. Students can either study at universities or work in companies all over the world. During this time students gain fundamental in-job experience and improve their cultural understanding. After returning back to Bremerhaven, students can prove their gained skills within projects in cooperation with regional organisations. Cleary, this unique course is characterized by a student-oriented and innovative teaching style which involves lots of teamwork and small working groups. Having successfully finished the course, students get the qualification for 1-year Master programmes and can look forward to promising career opportunities.
