Martine Bakker

Adjunct Instructor, NYU School of Professional Studies Jonathan M. Tisch Center of Hospitality
Alumna, Class of 2003

"I had worked in the tourism industry for a few years and realized that the time had come for me to expand my knowledge and to earn an educational credential that was related to the industry I was passionate about. I selected the Tisch Center because it offered me the exact program and curriculum I was looking for, and it allowed me to balance my studies and my job responsibilities. I’d been working in the Caribbean, and earning my degree was really the jump start I needed for career advancement here in the US"

"My instructors in the MS in Tourism Management program were working professionals who were committed to giving students the best education possible. A wealth of networking opportunities, internships, and the ability to learn with students from all over the world provided an incredibly comprehensive educational experience—one that will serve me a lifetime. In addition to my current job, I am now teaching Financial Strategies for Tourism Development in the MS in Tourism Management program. It is extremely gratifying to teach the next generation of leaders in this exciting industry."
