"If you have an idea of all the emerging themes in tourism, then [...] you're better able to look at the impact that your specified industry will have on the environment, and the social impacts that you may have as well."


Kelly-Ann Wright

Communication & Marketing Supervisor, HTM Research

"The faculty itself is very close to businesses. We all have connections to people working in hotels, in destinations, in convention centres, and in various events and food services. The students benefit from those relationships."
