Programa Avançado de Gestão para o Turismo (PAGETUR)

Ligada desde há 11 anos ao setor do Turismo no Município de Setúbal, com funções executivas e de planeamento na gestão de projetos e eventos turísticos, ter frequentado o PAGETUR permitiu aprofundar temáticas e consolidar conceitos que fazem parte do meu quotidiano.
Face ao contexto pandémico vivido, importa referir que regressar à sala de aula, em modo presencial e virtual, foi de facto um dos pontos positivos, pelas matérias transversais, e de visão futura aplicáveis no mundo empresarial. Tudo foi novidade e motivo para troca de ideias sobre diferentes sectores fortemente afetados. A reinvenção, a prestação de serviços, a diferenciação e sustentabilidade, bem como a abordagem de estratégias, e de adaptação a novas metodologias e ferramentas de trabalho.
A partilha de experiências entre colegas do grupo, bastante heterogéneo, e o estudo de casos, possibilitou-me conhecer diferenciadas organizações, cimentadas em projetos de relevo, e dinâmicas estruturantes no setor turístico.
Tive a oportunidade de conhecer pessoas fantásticas, e ser acompanhada por professores com elevada sapiência e competência, que souberam manter um espírito interativo, e de rigor essencial nos conteúdos curriculares, de eficácia na execução de projetos turísticos.
Foi uma experiência bastante sinérgica, de enorme enriquecimento profissional e pessoal, que contribui claramente para consolidar e qualificar as minhas competências.

My change of career for the tourism sector was the reason that led me to enroll in this program. Attending PAGETur was for me a unique and enriching experience for my learning and professional development in the tourism sector.

As a strategic sector of our country, it is crucial for this sector an appropriate qualification and the availability of programs such as PAGETur allow to develop and update knowledge.

The sharing of knowledge and study of practical cases, given by an outstanding faculty, together with the exchange of experiences among the participants, is the ideal combination for those who, like me, needed to extend knowledge in this area.

In my opinion the PAGETur program is an important tool for entrepreneurs who want to start a new project in the tourism sector. The knowledge acquired in class is fairly current allowing a transversal image of the industry. The case studies and study visits made this course distinctive in the market. On a personal level, the people I met from classmates and teachers, I consider that my expectations were exceeded.

My participation in the 1st edition of PAGETur was a wise decision as it contributed to the updating of knowledge in management and, consequently, to improve training in management skills, to which I dedicate myself.

The diversity and timeliness of the topics aligned with the national strategy for the sector, contributed to the success of this program which is already part of the academic agenda for tourism executives.

This program allowed me to enrich my networking - professional/academic world - and also enrich my portfolio in the areas of management and tourism.

Leading a Tourism and Hospitality Startup, I was looking to complement my management training and consulting experience, with a tourism management training. The good dynamic between PAGEtur's curriculum content, business visits, first-person testimonies, and case studies, made this program the perfect answer to my need. I emphasize the excellence of faculty teachers, full of experience in the sector and the extent, pertinence and useful practical application of the topics addressed. The collaboration and networking between teachers and students, as well as the possibility to work on my personal project as an object of study, throughout the course, were good extras and made this an immersive experience. PAGEtur meant personal and professional development and a source of inspiration, which I recommend to all experienced and new-entry tourism professionals.

Apart from being innovative, the PAGETur program is utterly fruitful when taking into account the current setting of tourism in Portugal and around the world. This valuable education, structured in carefully selected modules, and led by professionals of excellence in their fields, provide us with an tremendous source of knowledge, professional growth and inspiration. And, on top of it, the development of a productive networking that continues beyond the program, i.e., “THE PAGE ON TOUR”. I highly recommend it!

Permitiu alargar horizontes, a conceção de um projeto turístico de A a Z com apoio incondicional do meu grupo. Superou as minhas expectativas a todos os níveis. Deixo um agradecimento sincero e especial ao nosso grupo de trabalho e a todos os “PAGETURIANOS 6”.

Joining Pagetur had as objective deepen my knowledge in the various areas of Tourism, through conferences and seminars, without the evaluation component after each module. This course exceeded my expectations.

The fact that teachers have many years of practical experience in this industry allows us to address very useful practical questions.

From a logistical point of view, the parking convenience, as well as the coffee-break quality, especially on Friday night, is very helpful.

At last, I was fortunate to be part of a fantastic group, with very different backgrounds and ages, which made this experience a memorable one.

My participation in the first edition of PAGETur was an enriching experience. The demand for credible curricula and academic value for the professionals from the tourism industry is real and PAGETur came to meet this need. There is a good balance between theoretical and practical cases. The experience of this first edition will certainly help to introduce other differentiating factors and transform PAGETur into a market reference.

Given my previous education in engineering, and after being professionally involved for a number of years in the Tourism area, I decided it was time to improve my knowledge in this field. The PAGEtur, in an academia context, was essential to deepen ideas and core concepts in my professional daily routine. The organization and course structure, transversal and complementary, made this experience highly enriching and pedagogical, contributing to a noteworthy evolution of my knowledge in tourism project management, the area in which I am involved. The sessions, taught in an interactive manner and with open dialogue and exchange of past experiences, also included field trips, case study analysis and seminars that ensured a very important practical component within the themes studied. Additionally, the quality, experience, competence, and dedication of the faculty members were essential for the whole learning process and core in transferring their knowledge. Finally, amongst professors and other participants, I had the privilege to meet extraordinary people, that greatly contributed to make PAGEtur a winning bet and a highly recommendable program. Thank you all!

Increasing my awareness of the subject through the acquisition of new techniques and experiences, contributing not only to my personal and professional appreciation, but also, to give my company the concepts and tools needed to combine the best environmental practices to this sector in evident growth.

I started this program with very high expectations, because this was a very new and important area, as it is the area in which I want to develop my future professional and personal goals. With each module, my interest and enthusiasm increased, not only due to the richness of the information, but also through the sharing of experiences of both faculty and fellow participants. The PAGEtur program was, for me, and excellent bet, which I recommend to all who want to acquire or update their knowledge in the business environment of international tourism.

Participating in PAGEtur 5 was an enormous privilege, especially because I was lucky enough to be included in an extraordinary group, both of Professors and participants, where it was possible to share experiences and consolidate knowledge. As the person responsible for the tourism department at the Lisbon Oceanarium, it is very important to understand how the national and global tourism strategies position themselves, as well as to how other successful examples, in other business areas, act and overcome challenges. I highlight not only the program contents, the speakers from several different national and international tourism areas, but also the field trips which included a very practical section, which illustrated the national reality.
