Description

Tourism, including everything it encompasses, is one of the most attractive and powerful areas within the service sector. In fact, tourism is responsible for almost 11% of the world’s GDP, with a remarkable upward trend. Within the sector, different sub-sectors or segments coexist depending on the motivation for the trip, the destination, the type of traveler or the services to be contracted. Among them, there is a sector that has been newly identified and defined: the government and institutional travel sector, known as ‘Governmental and Institutional Travel and Tourism’ (GITT).

The expansion and extension of international relations since the second half of the twentieth century has meant that, for the proper development of these relations, representatives of governments and institutions have had to travel to different geographical points, inside and outside their national territory.

The movement of this type of delegation, with a Head of Mission at its head, involves a series of security and protocol requirements based on the status and rank of the Head of Mission, as well as the institutional role to be played in the trip. These needs are what notably differentiate the GITT sector from others such as the MICE or the VIP, and it is necessary to train the professionals involved in the development of the trip in order to carry it out successfully.

Through this ‘Expert Diploma in Governmental and Institutional Travel Sector’, specialized in the Travel Unit, the student will learn the skills and operations required to carry out this type of travel, taking into account all the needs related to security, protocol and communication, as well as its application in the different service suppliers involved in the trip.

Take the first step to become an expert in organizing governmental and institutional travel, expanding or redirecting your professional career towards an ever-expanding sector.
