General information

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 38-55 in Europe and 101-150 worldwide in Hospitality & Leisure Management (QS World University Rankings by Subject 2023).

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 2024. It is offered at the same time as the last two weeks of our traditional Summer School of Economics and Business (SSEB). If you wish, you can also enroll in the first two weeks of the SSEB (July 1-12, 2024) and take one or two courses closely related to some of the topics you will study at the STTIHAM: Environmental Economics and Policy Analysis: The Theory of Externalities and the Economics of Pollution Control and/or Doing Business in Spain: Cultural and Management Issues.

Join an exclusive 2-week study program that offers some high-quality modules about selected topics in Tourism, International Hospitality and Attractions Management:

* Environmental Policy and Sustainable Tourism
