Become an in demand tourism professional
Ask just about anyone where the job market is booming and they will probably mention tourism. Demand for professional staff in international tourism organisations continues to build, particularly in the Asia-Pacific region which represents one of the largest and fastest growing industry markets. International tourism organisations include international hotel and resort groups, food and beverage operators, attraction and entertainment services, tourism providers, destination marketing and management organisations.
A specialist degree in international tourism and hotel management will allow you to take advantage of this growth by providing you with specialist knowledge of service industries combined with professional leadership and business management skills.
