International Winter School on Event and Destination Management 2018

29 January – 9 February 2018

The University of Economics, Prague (VSE) (Czech Republic) and the Lucerne School of Business (LSoB) (Switzerland) offer a two-week winter school programme which takes the participants from one internationally recognised tourist location to another. Both Prague and Lucerne are beautiful, historic, and romantic cities which attract millions of tourists each year.

Both universities are recognised for the quality of their Tourism and Marketing departments and offer participants valuable insights into the fields of Event and Destination Management. The first week in Prague is dedicated to Event Management and aims to provide students with the theoretical and practical knowledge and skills necessary to organise various congresses, conferences, sports and other events. The second week in Lucerne features Destination Management and introduces participants to the complexity of tourism destinations, the mutual dependence of various involved service providers and the development of tourism destinations.


Event and Destination Management

Our programme addresses bachelor’s and master’s students from our partner universities interested in the respective fields. The working language of the weeks is English. 

The programme is complemented with company visits, excursions to tourist attractions and social activities. The two weeks together are worth 7 ECTS. Participants can either sign up for both weeks or just one of the two. The trip between the two cities can either be made by plane, train (~ 11 hours) or bus (~ 11 hours). Participants are responsible for their own travel arrangements.
