The Master's Degree Course in Planning and Management of Tourism Systems (PMTS) established a Steering Committee to listen to the representatives of the various professional fields in which PMTS students have done their traineeship or where they will be able to work after graduation. The Steering Committee facilitates and promotes the relationship between the CdS and the administrative, productive, territorial association context, bringing the training path closer to the needs of the working world and collaborating in defining the needs of the social partners involved. This Committee meets every year and gathers the stakeholders and institutions operating at different scales with a particular interest in the tourism sector.
Representatives of local and regional public institutions (the Coordination of the DMO VisitBergamo, the Regional Scholastic Office, the tourism sector in the Municipality of Bergamo and other municipalities in the Province of Bergamo), stakeholders in the sector of mobility and international transport (SACBO), museums and foundations (Fondazione Bergamo nella Storia, Fondazione Bernareggi), regional and local protected areas (Parco dei Colli di Bergamo, Parco delle Orobie bergamasche, Orto botanico di Bergamo), publishers and journals in the tourism sector (Italia a Tavola Network, Guida Viaggi, Touring Club), local associations for tourism services (Associazione Bergamo Bed & Breakfast).
Institutions participating in the Steering Committee have hosted or are willing to host our students as trainees and agree on the importance of interaction between the local and international dimensions in master-level studies; this interaction is realized both when dealing with cultural, territorial, economic and social themes, and when the attention is focused on how the most innovative multimedia technologies are providing an unprecedented key to reading for the same themes. In this sense it is therefore important that the educational offer of the course of study is always more up-to-date and in step with the needs of the students, who are working with an increasing amount of technologic systems.
