Postgraduate Programme in Management of Tourism Operations in Rural Settings (Evening Classes)

The tourism sector yields, in Portugal, around 13 billions Euros/ year, i.e., 10% of the Portuguese gross domestic product (GDP) and employs around 10% of the national active population.

Rural Tourism has already made positive contributions to the local economy, such as job creation and diversification, the development of new services, nature preservation and the support of local arts and crafts.

If used sustainably, the growth of Rural Tourism facilitates job creation, regional development and improvement of the quality of life of the inhabitants.

Framework

As far as the Programme syllabus and organisation are concerned, there is also a close cooperation with Turihab- Associação do Turismo de Habitação (Solares de Portugal e Casas de Campo)
