Future Careers and Employability
As international tourism continues to grow, new opportunities for business and career development are created. Opportunities exist in such areas as: travel media; event marketing, planning and management; travel agencies and tour operators; airlines, airports and other transport sectors; museums and theme parks; travel and tourism consultancy; hotels and other organisations in the hospitality sector; and the recreation and sport industries.
Opportunities not only exist in the private sector but also the public (government) sector, e.g., National Tourism Boards. As the tourism industry is essentially a service sector industry, graduates often seek work in such sectors as banking, finance and retail. Given that students have also gained the relevant knowledge and skills in business and management, they can expect to find work in the world of marketing and human resource management, for instance.
Graduates may go on to postgraduate study in ‘International Tourism Management’, or related areas associated with the hospitality and event industries. Additionally, they can opt for postgraduate programmes in business and management.
