Online business, also known as e-business, has slowly but surely become one of the key pillars of the business world, especially in the hospitality and tourism industries. In today’s world, you can book a ticket or hotel room through the internet without even getting up from your chair. As a result of this, the demand for young professionals with e-business competencies has grown significantly.

Confirming its status as the leading university of applied sciences in the Netherlands, NHTV Breda has become the first Dutch vocational institute to respond to this demand by launching its own online travel agency, Make It Your Own (MIYO) Travel.

This agency has been integrated into the study curriculum of NHTV’s Academy of Tourism since February 5th, 2013. Students of the academy can now join the travel agency to gain work experience not only in the fields of Tourism, Leisure, and Hospitality, but also in online business by developing and promoting the website.

MIYO Travel is not just a training company. It functions under the real pressure of the business world. To attract customers to make a booking, the website of this agency must stand against huge competition in the online environment of search engines and social networks. This challenge requires certain knowledge and skills which cannot be gained through a regular tourism programme.

In addition to their major specialisations, students of the Academy of Tourism are going to become experts in the e-business fields of search engine optimisation, online marketing, social media, and online analytics and accountancy. This interdisciplinary approach will help them to develop into strong professionals, familiar with all of the modern tools and valuable to any innovative corporation.
