I just meant that I was drawing lakes when I was 9....in tourism we should talk about management, marketing and staff like that.
I just want to learn more about Poland...not attacking anyone...besides I live in wroclaw and I like it !!
OK mauro, I apologize for my lighthearted remarks.
Here's what I think.
In order manage whatever it is that you want manage you need to understand the nature of it on all level. I'll give you an example.
I work as an IT fella. Normally I just click through the day (having checked all the servers, issues etc). I also have to develop some software for various departments. Right now I completed an asset management proggie that will make it easier and faster to log anything to do with the municipal infrastructure (roads, drains, road signs etc) by use of electronic mapping, GPS and sshit.
I can't write a proggie about things I have little idea about so I requested a truck (red one, with flashing lights an' all) and a few days on the road with public roads people. I put on steel toe boots, hard hat and I had to learn as much as possible of what is relevant to what I was expected to do. The world seen from an office looks different than the world seen from a truck or a bottom of a ditch.
My next project is cemetery management. Yes, I will go to funerals, follow the whole process from when a death certificate is issued to when a person is interred. Perhaps they'll let me dig a grave or push a button of the cremation furnace. Hopefully, I won;t have to be inside the cremation chamber at the time.
Again, I need to know the entire process on all levels if I want to be able to help them.
I worked for a department of state, a hydraulics company, a galvanizing plant, child and family services, hospitality industry, to name a few. Each time I had to learn the specific industry from ground up. And very fast at that.
I dunno any specifics of tourism studies, so again, I'd have live it for a few days to tell you what's gonna happen and what the use of drawing lakes is for your profession.
When you expect to deal with marketting and management then you need to study business and administration, and then possibly specialize in tourism.
At times I had doubts as to why certain topic were taught but as time went by I was able to appreciate the wisdom of those who came up with the curriculum. I guess jumping to conclusions might be a little early in the game.
What is the course name where they ask you to draw all those lakes?
I can't say how hard or how basic your curriculum will be in Poland, but in my experience, Polish universities were more demanding than those in the US and Canada. Your mileage may certainly vary.
