Which aspects of your degree programme have you been able to put to particularly good use in setting up your own business?
“There are a couple of things in different areas. Of course, you can’t put the entire theoretical knowledge perfectly into practice, but some aspects really have helped me, including customer and quality management, but also elements of international hospitality management. And, I have to admit, also controlling, although I didn’t really understand it yet as a student. In fact, I’ve retained a few relevant bits and pieces from almost every part of the programme, which I like to keep using even now. In particular, my bachelor’s thesis / practical research project was also very useful, as it already got me writing a business plan.”

    Welcome to the Faculty of Tourism Management!

    With around 650 students, we might be the smallest faculty at Kempten University of Applied Sciences, but all the more compact, friendly and almost like family. Our 14 tenured professors and 30 lecturers ensure practical and innovative curricula.

    Our free choice of majors and broad range of auxiliary modules enable students to tailor their degree portfolio to their special interests. A wide choice of foreign languages and intercultural exchange with around 40 partner universities all over the world round off our degree programmes that set our students well on the way to a promising career in tourism after graduating.

    So if you’re looking for a broadly based degree programme in a friendly faculty, then you’ve come to the right place! And what setting could be better than the heart of Germany’s Allgäu, one of the most thriving and beautiful holiday and leisure regions in the Alps?
