The Steering Committee:

The Master's Degree Course in Planning and Management of Tourism Systems (PMTS) established a Steering Committee to listen to the representatives of the various professional fields in which PMTS students have done their traineeship or where they will be able to work after graduation. The Steering Committee facilitates and promotes the relationship between the CdS and the administrative, productive, territorial association context, bringing the training path closer to the needs of the working world and collaborating in defining the needs of the social partners involved.

Institutions participating in the Steering Committee have hosted or are willing to host our students as trainees and agree on the importance of interaction between the local and international dimensions in master-level studies; this interaction is realized both when dealing with cultural, territorial, economic and social themes, and when the attention is focused on how the most innovative multimedia technologies are providing an unprecedented key to reading for the same themes. In this sense it is therefore important that the educational offer of the course of study is always more up-to-date and in step with the needs of the students, who are working with an increasing amount of technologic systems.
