The eTourism field is one of the main focuses of the programme “Innovation & Management in Tourism” at the University of Applied Sciences in Salzburg (UoASS). IMT is offered in the form of two bachelor programs (one program in German, the other one as an international program taught in English) and an international master program. We have formed a VR in Tourism Research Division that underlines the importance that the topic currently has for us in the IMT program.
We have recently expanded our VR in Tourism Research Division by two project groups and Tobias, who is looking at the topic from a technical point of view. Read more about it in this post.
