“Morocco is an entirely different country, which allows you to see things from another point of view and step out of your comfort zone. Knowing how people live in other parts of the world is fundamental to getting to know ourselves better.” These are the words of Marc Vila, a student at the School of Tourism. Marc took part in a study tour to Morocco together with students of the Faculty of Social Education and Social Work Pere Tarrés and the Blanquerna School of Health Sciences (URL).
Together with other Ramon Llull University (URL) schools and Catalan universities, HTSI will participate in the UNIFEM online platform as a result of the postponement of the Saló de l’Ensenyament for health safety reasons.

One of the study trips based on social work and solidarity organized by the School of Tourism and Hospitality Management Sant Ignasi – HTSI includes a trip to Cartagena de Indias, in Colombia. Together with other Ramon Llull University students from Blanquerna School of Health Science and the Pere Tarrés Faculty of Social Education and Social Work, HTSI students spent a few days discovering the current reality in Colombia. They also participate in a day of reflection on education and social work, health, nutrition, and tourism.
During the trip, students stay at the Santuario de San Pedro Claver centre for human rights. According to Jorge Peralta, professor and coordinator of Mission and Identity activities at HTSI, the study trip has three main objectives: “to get to know the sanctuary’s historic role in the fight against slavery in all its forms, to collaborate with its missionary work in particularly poor areas, and to reflect on the need to continue to promote the human rights included in the United Nations declaration.”
Experts in Afro-Caribbean studies, native art and the history of Cartagena share their knowledge with students through workshops and guided tours. Arnau Prats, 1st-year student of the Bachelor’s Degree in Tourism and Hospitality Management, spoke with us about his experience:Read more

“How much does each customer cost? We shouldn’t worry so much about the cost—we should focus on the value provided by each customer throughout their relationship with our establishment. That’s what we call lifetime value.” This is the advice of Claudia Rodríguez, the director of E-Commerce for the Selenta Group. Rodríguez offered a lecture entitled “Customer Acquisition from the Digital Channels: Paid, Owned and Earned Media” for 2nd-year students of the Bachelor’s Degree in Tourism and Hospitality Management from the School of Tourism and Hospitality Management Sant Ignasi – HTSI (Ramon Llull University). In it, she explained the importance of getting to know customers and defining an up-to-date digital ecosystem that is as specific as possible.
Most businesses’ main goals tend to focus on sales, but retaining customers is far more important. “There are many types of customers. They each have their own needs, and they can come to us through a range of channels”, Rodríguez told the future leaders of tourism. In other words, we encounter a whole series of moments of sale and it is essential that we put ourselves in the minds of potential customers. This concept is called “customer centricity”. “In the past, all you had to do was analyse a series of reservations, but nowadays users visit an average of 38 websites before making their purchase. And each user follows a different path”, stated the Selenta Group’s director of E-Commerce.Read more

Mediterranean cruises, in particular, are becoming more and more popular, with an 8% increase”, Anna Riba told students. “Plus, the port of Barcelona is one of the most visited, alongside ports like Miami, or Nassau.”Read more
