Cultural Tourism e-learning Programme

PORVOOCULTOU

Description

Are you a student, entrepreneur or other actor in the field of culture or tourism? Do you want to deepen your knowledge of cultural tourism or build new cooperation networks?

Finland needs more high-quality cultural tourism services to meet the growing demand of tourism. The development of these services requires attractive and distinctive cultural contents, multidisciplinary networks and strong expertise in the productisation and sale of tourism services. Tourism provides existing distribution, sales and marketing channels for cultural production, which can be used to attract new target groups to artistic and cultural content or to develop the profitability and business of cultural services.

The cultural tourism programme consists of three five-credit courses, which are available for studying either individually or as a whole.

The e-learning programme is implemented by JAMK, Haaga-Helia, Metropolia and LAB universities of applied sciences, as a co-operation between cultural production and tourism education. Each university of applied sciences produces studies for the common programme, which can be utilized by the participants in the training as agreed.
