Master in International Leisure, Tourism and Events Management

Welcome

Dear Students,

Very warm welcome all of you to your study program: the Master International Leisure, Tourism and Events Management. We are thrilled to have you with us in the new academic year. We hope that you will enjoy your academic journey. We will be here to support you every step of the way.

You will start your journey with the Study Start Week. During the first week of your study, we will offer several activities that allow you to get to know the program, your lecturers, alumni and most of all, each other. Due to the unique circumstances we are facing currently, most of the program will be offered online with some exceptions for events that we will try to organize in the great outdoors where we can comply with all rules and regulations.

Once again welcome to NHL Stenden University of Applied Sciences. We are confident that the year ahead will be filled with great experiences. We wish you good luck and hope to see you soon!
