- Why study in the tourism and hospitality sector?
We live in a country whose economic activity, due to its geographical location, historical tradition and Mediterranean temperament, is directly linked with tourism. According to the official data of the United Nations World Tourism Organization-THEMIS Foundation (UNWTO- THEMIS Foundation), tourism covers the 18% of the Gross Domestic Product of Greece and employs 963,000 workers in the tourist and hospitality industry (20.9% of all workers).
The time, when the avocation with the tourism industry was the last resort for families that came from a beautiful place with many visitors, has elapsed long ago. It is now confirmed that those who dealt with professions related to tourism, with unprofessional mentality and no theoretical training, not only substantially limited their prospects but also our country’s prospect to maintain among the top tourist destinations. Those of you, who will choose to study a speciality in the tourism sector, be sure that your attempt will find the most efficient effect in the tourism business arena.
