Faculty of Tourism
In the current era of increasing international competition and fast-changing technological developments, the mission of the Eastern Mediterranean University Faculty of Tourism is to train highly qualified advanced and intermediate workforce providing social and economical contributions to the tourism sector both in Turkey and the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus.
When the Faculty of Tourism was established in 1990, it offered only an A.A.S. degree.
In 1992, it started offering a BS degree in Tourism. Considering the needs of the tourism sector, the Faculty also emphasizes practical training besides theoretical education. To serve this purpose, the demo kitchen and the Tower restaurant and Beach Club, the world-wide used computer programs FIDELIO, GALILEO, and AMADEUS all aim to provide students with practical knowledge and an education which matches the needs of the scientific and technological era.
The philosophy of the Faculty is to provide an education which will enable its students to graduate with the ability to think, to express themselves with grace and clarity in writing and speech, to maintain values in relation to their chosen profession, and to demonstrate confidence in themselves. The Faculty of Tourism aims to be the leading educational institution in the Mediterranean region in preparing managerial candidates that will generate knowledge, and have the ability and skills to develop and practice this knowledge accordingly.
