Hello there,

Now it is official, last week a group of 24 our new master TDM students started the Master of Arts program in Tourism Destination Management at the NHTV Breda University of Applied Sciences. We are very happy to announce the international cultural diversity we have at the moment with students from 13 different nationalities:

  • Bangladesh
  • Iran
  • Belarus
  • Italy
  • Brazil
  • Kazakhstan
  • China
  • Netherlands
  • Germany
  • Russia
  • India
  • Vietnam
  • Indonesia


The first week of the master TDM students started with a great introduction program. The first days were spent to get to know NHTV and the beautiful and cozy city of Breda. To create good group dynamics the students also went to the Belgian Ardennes for a team building experience with the Venturix – an outdoor activity provider in the region. Besides some team-building activities the students climbed in the surrounding hills and went through a ‘survival-like’ fitness course. Additionally, the group got introduced how to approach assignments by carrying out a very simplified research assignment. We had very interesting outcomes and according to the many smiling faces during these days, this excursion was a great and successful introduction to what is to come in the future. Below you can see some impressions of the excursion.

On behalf of our Master TDM team we wish our students good luck with their Master of Arts studies!
