11 graduates successfully completed the five-semester post-graduate degree program, earning their degree "MBA Tourismusmanagement" at a recent graduation ceremony. The graduation ceremony was presided over by em. Univ. Prof. Roman Sangruber and he asked the graduates to remain in close contact to the JKU.  Stefan Praher, branch head of the office of the tourism and leisure industry at the Economic Chamber of Upper Austria was impressed with this year’s graduates as many students primarily selected hotel topics for their respective graduate theses.

Program director Herta Neiß reiterated that the individual courses link theory and practice, a concept that is one of the program’s main goals as well as their recipe for success. The program  has also been designed to accommodate working professionals.

The next program begins Summer Semester 2019 and will focus on digitization.
