About us

Our Department is a part of the Faculty of Management and Social Communication. We employ both scientists and practitioners from the fields of tourism and sport industry. The close marriage of theory and practice is the hallmark of our scientific research as well as of  our educational offer.

We offer graduate (MA) programmes of study: management in tourism and sports management. We also run a non-degree post-diploma programme in management of sports organizations, in close cooperation with the Polish Olympic Academy.

Our research is focused on tourism industry on a micro- and mesoscale. We look at processes and phenomena in tourism and sport industry from the angle of competitiveness by, which we understand "mutual striving" rather than of ruthless rivalry. That is why we put so much emphasis on cooperation between different sort of actors in the tourism industry, which, as we believe, would be the best path to develop sustainable knowledge-based tourist industry.
