Introduction

The Bachelor of Hospitality Management offers students an opportunity to broaden their career prospects in tourism and hospitality management by exposing them to studies in business related disciplines. This course promotes graduate employment outcomes in a range of tourism and hospitality professions, especially those demonstrating greatest current and projected employment outcomes. The principal focus of this qualification is the development and nurturing of practical skills. This course also focuses strongly on sustainable tourism and is designed to improve students' ability to lead and manage, as well as incorporate data analysis techniques used extensively across the industry to help forecast areas of growth and decline.
