The Department of Tourism and Hotel Management at Kinneret Academic College has had a leading bachelor’s degree program in tourism and hotel management (B.A.) for over 20 years, training Israel’s future generations of managers and senior employees in the tourism industry. In 2018, we started a unique international postgraduate program (M.A.) taught in English, focusing on tourism and hotel management strategies in an age of globalization. The M.A. in Tourism program provides the necessary knowledge, tools and skills for managing leading international systems such as hotel chains, tourism companies and airlines. The program’s excellent faculty combine academic research with extended practical experience in tourism management and planning.
Throughout their postgraduate studies, students take courses in tourism and hotel management, strategic management, marketing, economics and financial management, and must complete a final project. All this is done in a pleasant and intimate atmosphere facing gorgeous views of the Sea of Galilee. The Galilee area and its many tourism attractions provides an enriching learning experience, while accommodation can be found in student residences and nearby Kibbutzim at convenient prices.
