The best thing is, it’s never the same - you can’t predict anything. When everything works out, the results are the most rewarding thing."

Studying tourism in JAMK

Watch what Vili, Mariia, and Lotta have to say about Tourism Management Studies here at JAMK. For them the international athmosphere of the English Tourism and Travelling Program was one of the main reasons for choosing JAMK.

"The studies have been interesting and the teachers are helpful and understanding. There's also a lot of freedom to choose the courses that you find interesting. You can also decide if you want to do a practical training or exchange abroad." 

The future offers many possibilities for the students - possibilities such as working with event management or human resources.
