PostGraduate in Data Science for Hospitality & Tourism

Education objectives

Today, Data science allows to develop analytic models that simultaneously promote quality visitation and a better monitoring and management of these spaces, adopting metrics that, instead of just counting the number of visits, objectively evaluate the value created by each tourist who visits us.

This postgraduate program is aimed at senior managers, public and private technicians, consultants, entrepreneurs and other professionals who wish to acquire analytical skills in data science in the field of tourism, using the most advanced information management technologies, data collection and analysis methodologies.
