Organisations that develop tourism facilities, and those that provide essential services such as transport and holidays, are set to expand in the future. There is increasing demand for experts in formulating tourism policies, tourism plans, strategies and tourism marketing. As a tourism professional, you will need to take a strategic perspective and help develop a competitive sector that is sustainable.
Our tourism teaching team consists of highly qualified academics, researchers and practitioners in the tourism field.
