Tourism Management Department

“Tourism Education in Turkish Riviera”

In Turkey, we face a scarcity of well educated and multilingual staff in the Tourism industry. AHEP, thanks to its location and the nature of its mission, is an institution that hopes to change this for the better.

Our university is located in Alanya, one of the most important tourism centers of Turkey. According to the official website of Alanya Municipality, there are 680 Ministry of Tourism certified tourist accommodation facilities with a total bed capacity of 80,829 in Alanya. The annual number of foreign tourists coming to Alanya is around 2.5 million and this number is expected to increase in the coming years. Also, the number of flights organized by domestic and foreign airlines to Alanya - Gazipasa Airport is steadily growing.

The aim of AHEP Tourism Management (Undergraduate) Program is to raise individuals, precisely to the expectations of the tourism industry, which is one of the most important and fastest growing industries in the Mediterranean and Aegean regions. At the end of a 4-year long Tourism Management program, our students will be individuals, who are open to innovation, able to speak at least one foreign language other than English, they will be equipped with the latest technological monitoring and implementation skills. This is a 100% English program. For students whose English is not proficient enough, our university provides one-year of English preparatory education. In the course of their undergraduate education our students will also have the opportunity to learn a second foreign language (German, Russian, etc.).

In addition to our internationally experienced full-time faculty members, we will also have industry experienced guest speakers attending classes regularly who will share their knowledge and experience with our student body.

Thanks to all of these benefits and advantages, our department can realize its goal of graduating well-trained and experienced students who will be ready to take positions in the tourism industry right away.
