DGT Science Award: MCI Tourism the big winner

MCI Tourism graduates come first in two out of four categories.

The first day of ITB 2015 in Berlin included the presentation of the DGT Science Awards sponsored by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Tourismuswissenschaft e.V. (DGT). As so often in past, the Tourism Department at Management Center Innsbruck (MCI) was one of the big winners: In two out of four categories, graduates of the MCI Master program in Entrepreneurship & Tourism were victorious and received the coveted award in Berlin on the evening of March 4, 2015.

This year was the 21st edition of the DGT’s Science Awards for outstanding final theses submitted for tourism study programs. MCI graduate Julia Zraunig received the prize for the Best Student Thesis for her paper on "Leadership in Generation Y", and Angela Semrajc was the winner in the special eTourismus category with her Master’s thesis on the subject of mobile ethnography. These awards confirm once again the leading role played by the Entrepreneurial School® in tourism research and teaching in the German-speaking world.
