Most higher education institutions have not yet discovered health, medical, wellness or spa tourism. With only a handful of exceptions neither business schools, nor social media institutes where tourism and travel tend to belong have yet introduced special programmes, courses or degrees.

The TOHWS is happy to initiate discussions, so this situation would change in the near future. Both industry and academia would need to talk more about the expectations and the alternatives.

Below, we introduce a selected list of schools that have already run programmes and courses in the field.
