UdG lecturers give advice on Tourism Studies at Addis Ababa University

Lecturers of the Tourism Faculty give advice on the Tourism and Development Studies offered by Addis Ababa University. This action has been financed by the Spanish Agency for International Cooperation and Development (AECID).

A team of lecturers of the UdG Tourism Faculty, coordinated by Dr. Lluís Mundet, has travelled to Ethiopia. As soon as they have arrived, they have gone to the Spanish Embassy, where they have been received by the Spanish Ambassador Antonio Sánchez Bendito-Gaspar and by the Technical Office for Cooperation (OTC) and its technical members. Actually, the OTC technical members were the ones to put the UdG team of experts in tourism in touch with Professor Mulugeta Feseha, who runs the Development Studies School of Addis Ababa University since 2009. This gathering heralds the possibility of future lecturer exchanges and of local students joining master’s degrees offered by the UdG Tourism Faculty or even the PhD programme.

One of the oldest universities in Africa

UdG lecturers have also been received by Dr. Admasu Tsegaye, rector of Addis Ababa University. It must be said that this university is the oldest and largest in Ethiopia and one of the oldest in Africa. It has more than 50.000 bachelor’s degree students and 11.000 in total are taking one of the 215 postgraduate and PhD programmes offered by the university. The rector has showed much interest in cooperating with UdG, since this is one of the first projects signed by this university with a Spanish higher education institution. In fact, Ethiopia takes Spain as a reference in the tourism sector. Precisely, tourism is one of the priorities for the Ethiopian government, as it is aware of the country’s important cultural heritage, even if it still lacks appropriate education programmes in this area.

AECID funds

This action has been approved and fully financed by the Spanish Agency for International Cooperation and Development (AECID), in the framework of the Inter-University Cooperation Programme (PCI), and has been called “Tourism as an instrument for protecting and highlighting Ethiopian heritage. Case analysis and study”.
