Field Trips

One of the main elements that makes EMTM a unique program in the field of tourism studies, is the fact that it takes place in three totally different countries of the European continent, that can provide the visitor with three different tourism experiences. One of EMTM's biggest goals is to give students a taste of the local tourism industry in each of the three countries, therefore it organizes at least one field trip for the class in each semester. 

In this section you can find examples of previous field trips that EMTM alumni had the chance to participate in.
