Sustainable Tourism Management (MA)

NTM Gruppenbild


With our Master’s degree, students do not only gain a profound knowledge of tourism management but they also learn how to integrate sustainability into their work processes.

Thanks to our geographical location and cooperation with partners in practice, we are connected with both the rural region and also the metropolis of Berlin. International students, field trips and modern approaches to learning enrich the university atmosphere. 

We are green, act regionally and think internationally - be inspired and learn with us how to create sustainable tourism.
