The Salzburg Tourism Schools offer a diverse education in the field of tourism and hospitality. Four vocational schools spread across Austria train their pupils to excel in tourism, leisure and hospitality management. Despite being governed by the Salzburg Economic Chamber, the Salzburg Tourism Schools are private institutions. Each year the roughly 1,500 student enrolled can choose between different degrees, and certain courses will provide students with a university entrance qualification or equivalent. The Salzburg Tourism Schools were founded 65 years ago and have developed into an internationally renowned and revered tourism education facility.
