Certificate in Sustainable Tourism Management

Certificate in Sustainable Tourism Management



We are proud to offer a professional Certificate in Sustainable Tourism Management, which is awarded jointly by TIES and the George Washington University (GWU). This program has been developed through a partnership with the GWU's International Institute of Tourism Studies, which has provided professional tourism education for nearly twenty-five years.


"At the same time that I began the Certificate process, I started what is now THE COUNCIL FOR SUSTAINABILITY-RIVIERA MAYA, with more than 30 productive, social, academic, and governmental authorities. That would definitely not have been possible without all the magnificent information that I found through the course." - Beatriz Barreal Danel, Riviera Maya Sostenible
