Tourism/Travel Management

The Bachelor's study programme "Aviation Management" from the Department of Tourism/Travel Management offers an English language degree in Business Administration, which conveys concentrated knowledge about the interrelationships in the aviation industry.

This Bachelor's study programme can be completed either as a regular course of study or as co-op studies with a cooperation partner. According to the university, the contents of the individual modules for the "Aviation Management" course for co-op students correspond to those contents of non-co-op students.

For non-co-op students, practical phases are included during the course of study which are equivalent to those of co-op students in terms of its duration and substantive orientation. The difference to the variant with cooperation partners lies above all in the fact that you can get to know several companies during the individual practical phases and that you can, for example, look for another company for each of your separate practical phase. This will give you insight into different areas and applications. According to the study accounts scheme of the federal state of Rhineland-Palatinate, no tuition fees are charged for either model.
