The tourism sector generates 319 million jobs and 10.4% of world GDP and is characterised by constant growth. Moreover, while employment in all sectors is growing at an average rate of 8% in the G20 countries, the hospitality sector is growing three times faster at a rate of 30%, reaching 40% in non-G20 nations.* Despite these positive data, companies in the sector, especially in Italy, are finding it difficult to find new skills and professional roles in the labour market that are most critical for their development.
IULM, thanks to a close collaboration with leading tourism companies and institutions, has been constantly updating its educational offer for over 20 years in order to meet the needs of the market.
In addition, students are supported in identifying the professional careers best suited to their interests and personal aptitudes. In particular, the Placement section of the Career Service and Business Relationship Office offers career guidance services and promotes meetings between students or graduates and companies looking for talents. In addition to providing a network of accredited companies, the University offers a stimulating and accurate preparation for the transition from the university world to the business world through the activation of high value-added services such as Job Seminar, Job Day and its Job Fitness Center.
