FULL TIME STUDY TOURISM

The degree programmes of the University College of Business (VSO) primarily focus

on educating and preparing qualified experts for professions in the tourism industry, in aviation services and aviation business management, as well as in the civil service and business sector. Our overriding aim is for students to graduate with theoretical knowledge they have already applied in real life. This way they can succeed in the highly competitive environment of the current labour market.

Vysoká škola obchodní v Praze, o.p.s. (VŠO) has been operating as a private school of higher education (non-university type) since 2000, with a curriculum based on economics and transport. In those seventeen years, VŠO has acquired an important position among non-university colleges in the Czech Republic. There are currently more than 2,500 students actively studying here.

Tourism is the right degree programme for you

The aim of this bachelor’s degree programme is to give students practical and theoretical education for working in the tourism industry and make sure they have good working knowledge for the business sector as well. Graduates will be able to find jobs in travel agencies, in hotel and restaurant managements, and in the higher positions of medium and large businesses.

Professional knowledge

The main subjects of this branch are economics, the technique of tourism services, and business economy. These subjects concern the basics of management, marketing, trade law, psychology and sociology. Studying two foreign languages is not unusual, either. Students may choose from English, German, French, Spanish or Russian. Students will gain practical skills from subjects that include human resources operation, finance, accounting and IT.

Employment after graduation

Graduates in this field will find employment in the tourism industry, namely in travel agencies or in hotel/restaurants. The universal orientation of the subjects also allows graduates to apply for management positions in medium and larger businesses.
