Department of Tourism Management Community home page Statistics

Tourism education at the University of Malta was significantly strengthened in 2010 with the setting up of the Institute for Tourism, Travel and Culture (ITTC). Prior to that tourism studies was well established with formal programmes offered by the Faculty of Economics, Management & Accountancy (FEMA) since 1995. ITTC, today again part of FEMA, is being referred to as the Department of Tourism Management. This change occurred on 28 September 2023 when the UM Council approved the setting up of the Department of Tourism Management on the recommendation of the UM Senate.

At the Department of Tourism Management, we offer a range of tourism and culture courses at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, and a number of Ph.D. students are completing related research. Each of our programmes is designed to challenge you intellectually and expose you to a broad range of industry practice.

We are active in research and are involved in a range of EU-funded research projects. We work closely with local tourism and culture stakeholders and our academics collaborate with tourism academics at several European universities. These links ensure that the programmes of study we offer are relevant and useful to people who wish to pursue a career in the tourism or culture sectors.
