Leisure management

New Bachelor programme starting in academic year 2019/2020

The Entertainment industry alone (Sport, Music and Entertainment, Museums and Publishing Media Production, etc.) has an estimated global value of more than 640 billion dollars, while the global Tourism sector is worth more than 1600 billion dollars. These two industries form the foundation of what is known as the Leisure sector, which consists mainly of services. This sector attracts a range of different product industries whose mission is to provide support and opportunities for those who wish to enjoy Leisure services. These industries include, for example, technical clothing for sports activities, electronic devices for accessing the contents of various media channels, spaces designed for attending artistic performances.

The growth of the Leisure Economy, recorded virtually without distinction in all the different fields, is typified by significant business model transformations reflecting the changing habits of those who live in the new global society. If we consider the developments in this sector, both technological and in terms of creativity, it is easy to understand that these activities require new, high level and specific forms of managerial expertise.

During the three-year Bachelor programme, and with the help and support of their teachers, students can construct and customise their individual study itineraries by selecting specific courses in the various activities associated with the Leisure sector, including even the most recent career opportunities.

Visiting the section called Testimonial, which is available on the Italian website of the course, it is possible to find short interviews to experts who attended the OpenDay 2019, while consulting the Media Gallery you can browse selected images of special lectures and other moments included in the didactic programme offered by the Bachelor in Leisure Management.
