The Degree in Tourism and Sustainable Business at ISPGAYA provides markedly practical and experimental training, based on the theoretical knowledge required for professional practice, and it's certified by Tourism of Portugal.

It promotes inter and multidisciplinary training in various fields, by transmitting solid technical knowledge about human intervention and tourism, valuing the understanding of the intercultural dimension and its interactions in a wide range of sectoral domains of the economy and society, capable of promoting implementation of sustainable tourism businesses.

Future tourism professionals are asked to have an awareness, and a critical attitude, about ethical, environmental and legal guidelines that frame the best practices used for the implementation and sustainable management of tourism development projects.

Companies in the sector face the challenge of adapting to the new factors of competitiveness due to globalisation, the new world order, pandemic crises, energy crises, climate change, among others. Despite all the upheavals in the markets and the international and national circumstances, even if adverse, the industry will manage to generate new tourist businesses, more sustainable companies, which will require new forms and new jobs to which ISPGAYA graduates will be able to respond.
