Program Description:
Bentley Students in Germany
This course introduces students to the tourism and hospitality industry with special emphasis on the role of passenger transportation. We travel to Poland and Germany: two of Europe’s strongest economies, basing our studies in Warsaw, Krakow, and Munich. We examine each city's numerous diverse tourism offerings and well-developed transport infrastructure. We consider tourism in the context of contemporary events, including economic recession, currency fluctuations, and security challenges. Specific themes stimulating tourism at these locations include religion, food, drink, sports, architecture, and war. Recognizing the historical development of tourism in Europe, students will also gain insights on the industry’s growth potential for the future. We also look at tourism’s many economic, social, and environmental impacts on the host location though our class project exploring first-hand insights from local residents. This travel study experience will help prepare students for professional involvement in a variety of capacities with stakeholders in the tourism and transportation industries.
