Keywords: Globalization theory | Tourism education | Bologna Process

This paper examines the Bologna process from the perspective of globalization theories and analyses its impacts on the future of tourism education. The study showed that Bologna has important impacts on both tourism research and scholarship in Europe. It illustrates how it enhances the globalization of European higher education. The tools of Bologna structure involve a standardisation process that can help to solve the problem of fragmentation intourism scholarship and may further develop globalization processes worldwide. Finally, the study argues that Bologna is a historical opportunity to use the systemic changes to gain a stronger image for tourism education.
