First edition postponed to the summer of 2024.

Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM)’s Summer School “Selected Topics in Tourism, International Hospitality and Attractions Management” (STTIHAM) is a unique opportunity to broaden your horizons in one of the most beautiful and liveliest cities of the world, while studying at a top university. The Faculty of Economics and Business Studies at UAM is ranked 51-100 worldwide in Hospitality & Leisure Management (QS World University Rankings by Subject 2022).

Given our academic strength in this field, the economic importance of Tourism in Spain, and that the UN World Tourism Organization is headquartered in Madrid, we have created this new summer program for 2023. It is offered just the two weeks before our traditional Summer School of Economics and Business (SSEB). So now we have two consecutive programs (2 + 4 weeks) that can be taken together or separately.

We invite you to embark on this life-changing journey to gain a new perspective on your studies, make new friends from all over the World, immerse yourself in a different culture, and discover something new about yourself! Join an exclusive 2-week study program that offers some high-quality modules about selected topics in Tourism, International Hospitality and Attractions Management, all taught in English by top professors and researchers of UAM’s Faculty of Economics and Business Studies.

STTIHAM brings together students from all over the World and a few local students in a truly international environment. The course is complemented by social and cultural events, as well as academic field trips, which are not offered during the regular Fall and Spring semesters.

STTIHAM targets students keen to gain academic enrichment in cutting-edge topics related to Tourism, International Hospitality and Attractions Management:

Environmental Policy and Sustainable Tourism, Cutting-edge technology applied to tourism activities (Crypto-economics and crypto-assets, Metaverse), Human resource management in Europe’s Hospitality sector, Hospitality Finance in Europe, Customer Experience Management in Hospitality, and Culture, history, leisure, and attractions management in Madrid.

If you wish to continue your studies for 4 more weeks in the SSEB Program, you can choose 1 or 2 courses from the following: Environmental Economics & Policy Analysis, International Finance, Global Marketing, and Doing Business in Spain. Check all the details at uamsseb.education.
