A top partnership for praxis-oriented advanced training and continuing professional development courses for specialists and managers in the travel industry in Berlin and Brandenburg

A top partnership for praxis-oriented advanced training and continuing professional development courses for specialists and managers in the travel industry in Berlin and Brandenburg

New York - Peking - Paris - Berlin-Brandenburg: The Bildungswerk der Wirtschaft in Berlin- Brandenburg and BEST-RMG Reisen Management AG signed a cooperation agreement for an indefinite period of time while attending the International Tourism Exchange (ITB) in Berlin; the purpose of this agreement is to ensure excellent and praxis-oriented advanced training and continuing professional development courses for tourism specialists and managers.

Cornelius Meyer, who the board member for Marketing Sales at BEST-RMG Reisen Management AG, sees excellent opportunities for the travel industry. 'Our goal is to get young talent interested in travel sales and to recruit junior managers. We now have the opportunity to inform students about the travel agency business during seminars and presentations and we can offer them concrete job prospects at our member travel agencies. It is about time that we show young talent how modern and cosmopolitan the work is at lucrative travel agencies.'

Both partners want to support each other in the future to capitalise on the mutual benefits of sharing expertise with well-trained specialists and their recruitment. The purpose of the agreement is also to encourage the regular exchange of information amongst professionals in the industry and to put on events together, such as special lectures on development trends in the market. BEST-RMG is an association of approximately 560 travel agencies and it will benefit from the cooperation agreement with bbw because it will have the opportunity to have direct access to interns and graduates with suitable Bachelor's and Master's degrees who have specialised in tourism and event management. BEST-RMG will also be able to make an active contribution to the practical aspects of the programme's content.

According to Dr Andreas Forner, the Managing Director of bbw Bildungswerk der Wirtschaft in Berlin und Brandenburg, 'This cooperation is especially suitable given the current trends in the tourism market and bbw's strategy on praxis-oriented advanced training and continuing professional development courses; this strategy has made our university of applied sciences, which is run by business for business, number 1 among the state-recognised private universities of applied sciences in Berlin and Brandenburg. And this is especially true for our popular programme of study in economic sciences with a specialisation in tourism and event management. Like all of the other industry specific advanced training and continuing education courses at bbw, this programme has profited in particular from our institution's solid network with prestigious market leaders like BEST-RMG.'

We have to thank the former Managing Director of the bbw Bildungswerk, Ingrid Menten, for coming up with the idea and taking the initiative for the collaboration. She established contact with BEST-RMG and played a large role in arranging the activities.
