Hospitality & Tourism Management

CBU, through collaboration with FH Joanneam in Bad Gleichenberg, Austria offers a Hospitality & Tourism Management concentration within the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration degree. The concentration educates managers who can organize and implement tourist offers in the hospitality and leisure fields.


If you decide to complete the Hospitality & Tourism concentration, you will spend three months (October-December) studying at the partner university in Bad Gleichenberg which is located in the Spa Region of eastern Styria. This location is ideal because it is one of the leading tourist regions in Austria both in terms of quantity and quality and continues to achieve above-average growth rates in the tourism sector. Bad Gleichenberg has a long tradition as a spa resort and training center for the tourism and hotel industry.

Costs included in this study abroad program are the standard tuition and fees paid to CBU (students do not pay tuition to the school in Austria), airline tickets, dorm room (very affordable), and food.
