 Tourism and Hospitality Management
 UNSW Main Campus


Tourism and Hospitality is one of the world's fastest growing industries. A major contributor to most economies, tourism contributes over ten percent of Gross Domestic Product in an increasing number of countries. Yet as tourism expands globally, competition among nations and among destinations is intensifying. To tackle the challenges ahead, tomorrow's managers need advanced marketing and management skills, as well as problem-solving and critical-thinking abilities. Our degree is designed to train the industry leaders of the future to operate in this complex yet stimulating environment.

Tourism and Hospitality Management is a marketing specialisation that provides students with a wide range of further employment opportunities. In addition to marketing courses and a rigorous core of accounting, economics and business statistics, students enrol in courses such as tourism policy and planning, human resource management, tourism and hospitality law, together with hospitality management for hotels, resorts and restaurants.

Students receive practical training at an approved training college and are required to complete at least 750 hours of industry work experience as part of the program, adding to the richness of the degree. Graduates find careers in international hotel chains, resorts, airlines and tourism organisations, both in general management as well as in marketing.
