Degree programme objectives

The objectives of the study are primarily based on the innovated graduate profile, which can be described systemically in the following way: economic base of knowledge (dominance of theory) – extension of economic base of knowledge (combination of general and program specific knowledge) – gaining of relevant competences and skills (dominance of practically usable procedure aimed at management of regional development and tourism). The study of the Regional Development and Tourism program gives opportunity to a comprehensive understanding of the links between territorial conditions and societal development results that respect the principles of holism, integration, sustainability, general usefulness and effectiveness. Compared to the current field of study, students will gain deeper knowledge and skills needed to processing of analyses and follow-up syntheses reflecting societal and business preferences of main actors of regional development and tourism. From a practical point of view, this knowledge forms an integral part of modern administration and management of regions and municipalities, as well as sustainable corporate management (with a specific emphasis on tourism), including the creation of strategic visions, concepts and development plans. The uniqueness of the proposed program lies just in this complex understanding of societal development in its spatial context.
