Educating for Leadership in Sustainable Tourism: A Dual Studies Model for Developing Countries


The purpose of this study is to promote leadership in the field of Sustainable Tourism (ST) in developing countries by creating a bachelor programme of ST Management based on the German dual studies system.

The proposed programme is innovative in that it combines the manifold advantages of the successful dual study model with new insights gained from recent advances in the field of ST curricula development.

To date there is no ST bachelor programme based on the dual studies model nor research dealing with this specific focus.

This new concept of ST Management is intended to be integrated into existing higher education institutes in a developing country (DC) context.
