ITEM Study Programme in Preparation in 3rd Partner Meeting in Klaipeda
Author: liga.tuca Date: 22.10.2013

From September 30 to October 1, 2013, the representatives of ITEM partneruniversities gathered in Klaipeda, Lithuania, to continue the work on joint study programme development.

During the 3rd meeting, an important goal has been reached, the study programme „International Tourism Events Management” description and modules have been defined, and the next stage of study module development has been started. The new study programme will focus on general and specific areas for tourism and event management, including modules in Tourism events research methodology, Policy  and corporate governance, Event management and innovation, Event marketing, Financial management of events, funding and sponsorship, together with live projects in business consulting. The new study programme will be jointly delivered by Vidzeme University of Applied Sciences and Klaipeda University and supported by consortium partners: Estonian School of Hotel and Tourism Management EHTE, Estonia, Manchester Metropolitan University, UK, Association of Hotels and Restaurants of Latvia and the International Centre of Studies on the Tourist Economy, Italy.

Another important feature of the new programme will be close cooperation with industry and application of technologies in the process of teaching. All three Baltic states will work on creating close links with industry in order to set up a cooperation network both for student internships, live projects, case studies and other common activities. To improve the ICT aspect of the study programme, in December 2014 all involved teachers will participate in training aimed at technology use in education.

The new master’s programme is developed in the framework of Erasmus Multilateral project “Joint Masters in International Tourism and Events Management” (ITEM - 527698-LLP-1-2012-1-LV-ERASMUS-EMCR).
