The tourism sector is growing rapidly. Increasingly the sector is recruiting managers with recognised and relevant academic qualifications.
Internationalisation is a key challenge with the ensuing cultural management needs.
Tourism, travel and hospitality electives compliment 'standard' MBA business management modules.
Typical modules might include:
The travel and tourism business
Travel agency management
Tour operations management
Culture and cross-culture management
Environments of tourism
These programs largely target those already in management positions within the tourism industry or professionals from elsewhere seeking a move into tourism management positions but opportunities may also arise for those considering careers as analysts in the leisure industry, management roles in hospitality businesses or those seeking entrepreneurial opportunites in related areas.
