Iran and Austria are taking preparatory steps to hold a joint travel and tourism training course in an Austrian university.
“Right now, we are negotiating with the officials in MODUL University in Vienna to hold a joint travel and tourism training course there,” says Houshang Talebi, the president of Isfahan University.
In a Farsi interview with IMNA, Talebi added that last year the two sides held a training workshop on travel and tourism in Isfahan for tourism and hotel managers in Isfahan, which paved the way for expansion of bilateral relations between universities Isfahan and MODUL.
Talebi went on to say that the decision to expand the relations between the two universities was taken last year after talks with the head of Austrian Chamber of Commerce.
He also pointed out that MODUL University in Vienna is a reputable academic centre affiliated with the Austrian Chamber of Commerce.
“The university is well-known for the degrees it gives in tourism, Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA), Master of Business Administration (MBA), and Commercial Management,” he said, adding, Isfahan University is planning to hold a joint course in tourism at MA level in the Austrian university.
He also said the admitted students will receive two diplomas.
“We expect to make the arrangements by the next couple of months to register the first group of students for the next semester,” he noted.
Austria has 22 public universities, 27 public colleges, 12 private universities and 21 universities of Applied Sciences.
