As a Tisch Center student, you will have opportunities to take courses around the world that will provide a global perspective of the hospitality, tourism, or sports industries. To truly capture the global essence of these fields, Tisch Center students are encouraged to integrate global experiences into their programs of study.
The Tisch Center offers study away programs designed to introduce students to international, cultural, and business contexts that elevate their ability to lead in any setting, thereby increasing their value to employers. Study away courses incorporate theoretical knowledge and business application, providing students with the opportunity to analyze the latest trends and forces shaping these global industries.
For example, students visited Prague and learned about the city’s recent Olympic bid, as well as the potential legacy effects on arenas, events, lodging, and travel in the Czech Republic, had the city been chosen. They toured the historic city and met prominent industry leaders, while fulfilling three credits of their academic program. During other study trips to Berlin and Brazil, students gained firsthand experience with sports tourism and mega-event planning; cultural heritage; and special-interest tourism. In Brazil, students were challenged to create a business plan that would increase revenue by utilizing new hotel development and local sporting opportunities such as windsurfing, in order to enhance the appeal of a particular region as a destination for tourism.
