University of Eastern Finland - Finland
Description organisation:

The Finnish University Network for Tourism Studies (FUNTS) has since 1995 carried out an innovative approach to the academic education. FUNTS provides a genuinely multidisciplinary approach and an innovative way of developing research and education in universities. Degree students of the member universities can study tourism studies as a minor subject. Therefore, FUNTS does not lead to the award of master level degrees on its own, but students will graduate from their own universities and receive a Bachelors/Master's degree in their major with the orientation towards tourism studies. The emphasis is on generating shared knowledge and empowering students with multi-professional skills. The member universities of FUNTS are: Aalto University University of Helsinki University of Eastern Finland Lappeenranta University of Technology University of Lapland University of Oulu Hanken School of Economics University of Tampere University of Turku Coorditating university: FUNTS has its home base in the Centre for Tourism Studies at Savonlinna campus of the University of Eastern Finland. http://www.uef.fi/mot
