The School of Tourism and Hospitality Management Sant Ignasi encourages mobility of university as part of their training in the field of tourism and hospitality. For students of HTSI university programs, an essential element is to acquire a range of skills such as foreign languages, intercultural and international experience.
THE EXPERIENCE OF TRAVEL AS A LEARNING METHOD
With experience as a methodology, the Study Tours are focused on various subjects, both academic and professional. The university can, through these trips, implement the knowledge acquired in the classroom, meet diverse perspectives of the tourism sector and the national and international hospitality industry, as well as interact with other students from diverse backgrounds.
The purpose of these trips is, above all, so students have enriching experiences with colleagues from the HTSI university community that improve the personal understanding of oneself through experience outside the classroom, and to discover the reality of the tourism and hospitality sector beyond the purely academic boundaries. Some trips have a more professional focus, and are centred on getting to know the status of tourism and hotel development at the destination. These generally include visits to hotels and tourism businesses. Other trips are more focused on getting to know the social circumstances of the countries visited; they are organized together with other schools of Ramon Llull University.
Above all, the purpose of these trips is to provide students with enriching experiences together with their classmates from the HTSI community.
