Faculty of Tourism
Travel and Tourism is an adventure, an education, and an experience all rolled into one. It is a continuous learning experience. It is both a science and an art – an “Art” in terms of the places we sell and the richness of the cultures that we enjoy, and a “Science” in terms of managing the business side of it.
The Tourism industry in Lebanon has been historically important to the local economy and remains to this day to be a major source of revenue for Lebanon.
