The module aims at applying key knowldge of the economics principles into the Touristic market, mainly focusing on the impact the tourism on the regional economy and the role of transport in shaping tourism markets.
The course aims at providing an in depth information on different kinds of tourism, their evolution over time and the determinants of the demand for tourism. The role of territorial accessibility will also be investigated, namely in establishing the boundaries for potential tourism market areas within an economic region, with a look to both physical or incorporeal infrastructure and to the supply of services. Finally, students will be given a full information about the production of transport services with a specific focus on passenger transportation.
The student will be capable of correctly assessing economics elements (e.g. inflation, derived demand, income) and how these factors impact on different forms of tourism. Moreover, both transport infrastructure and services will be assessed in order to investigate how they can impact on different tourism market organisations.
