Today, in accordance with the requirements of the time, the role of state structures in the development of tourism is strengthened. Activities related to the strategic development of tourism, the definition of priorities in the development of tourism activities of the territories, forecasting, planning and planning of tourist services at the level of the city, region and country are of particular importance. Organization and management of the development of tourist clusters, tourist complexes, and analysis of the tourism services market, development and implementation of innovations in the tourism industry require special knowledge and competence.

The first year the training is held in the IGBT RUDN, the second year the undergraduates study in one of the partner universities, studying the specifics of tourism development in this or that country.
During the training, students conduct research work within the framework of the selected topics; pass practical training at the profile enterprises. As a result of the training, the undergraduates receive a diploma on the formation of two universities.

As a result of mastering the program, undergraduates acquire the skills to solve the following professional tasks:

"Training in the Master's program of the IGBT RUDN in the direction "Tourism" under the joint program "Planning and development of tourism at the state level" allowed to gain the knowledge necessary for the development of professional competences in the tourism sphere. The activity of the leadership and the teaching staff of the Institute is aimed at the preparation of competitive, qualified personnel in the field of tourism. Global targets and changes in the world and in the tourist sphere are taken into account. Particular attention is paid to issues of intercultural communication, which is especially important. During the educational process there was an opportunity to participate in conferences, master classes, forums held both in the Institute and in other professional community.
Foreign students in most cases face language barriers. To eliminate these problems, the Institute's management works individually for every master student, helping in difficult situations, offering different ways of solving problems.
Training in the Master's program of the IGBT RUDN allowed me to find many foreign friends who, I hope, will become great professionals in the tourism sphere in the future.
