ITS to offer courses at Masters Level for the first time

As from this October the Institute for Touristic Studies (ITS) will be offering courses at Masters Level for the first time, in collaboration with the Emirates Academy of Hospitality Management. The development has been described by Tourism Minister Konrad Mizzi as a further step to increase the Institute’s courses to a higher academic standard.

ITS Chairman Carlo Micallef said the course which leads to an MBA in International Hospitality Management is open to students as well as those who already occupy managerial positions and wish to advance through further studies.

Micallef said students may wish to undergo the course in Malta but may also pursue studies in Dubai and then spend a year in Malta following courses. He said this is an important development that increases the standards of ITS and its international profile.

Minister Mizzi said the hospitality industry needs trained human resource in order to attract better quality tourism. He mentioned the United States, South Korea, China, Japan and India and other markets, but work is also being carried out in different market segments, including MICE, the travel conference that will be of great importance next year.

ITS launched a call for applications for courses that will be offered in the next academic year. During the last year the Institute had about 900 students, a third of which were foreign, Minister Mizzi said the Institute is planning dormitories to be able to host more overseas students.
