The courses offered would be ideal for students in Tourism and who have an interest in learning about Tourism in Mexico. The program is delivered in English and offered in Guadalajara and Puerto Vallarta, where you will be exposed to a case study of what has turned Mexico into a top touristic destination in Latin America.

In addition to lectures, workshops and touristic sites visits, the participants will be given the opportunity to do an internship at different Puerto Vallarta’s tourism-related places such as a hotel, a convention center, or even at a government office in the Riviera Nayarit. These internships are intended to provide students with opportunities to bring into real life contexts the skills acquired throughout their academic studies and knowledge developed in the course; i.e. live the tourism industry from the point of view of the Mexican context and thus be able to make comparisons that enhance their comprehensive knowledge of tourism in general
