Bachelor of Business in Tourism & Hospitality Management
This three-year Bachelor program combines a rigorous and contemporary curriculum with practical experience in the industry along with the important opportunity to develop professional networks. Students will graduate from this program with the skills and knowledge that they need to be hired by tourism and hospitality employers both in Australia and overseas.
There are two pathways within this course. Students can either study elective units from a broad range of industry-specific topics (such as international destination management, cruise tourism, coastal and marine tourism, food and beverage management, event management, gaming management and sport tourism), or select one of three majors.
An internship program, which counts as four core units of the degree, provides students with a block of practical workplace experience during their final study session that involves working in a hospitality, event or tourism organisation in Australia or overseas.
Major areas of study
The Hotels and Resorts major aims to equip students with the knowledge and skills to successfully work in a hospitality organisation or operation. Students study contemporary trends in the industry, and the political and cultural factors that shape the way hospitality organisations are managed. Students in this major will gain an understanding of key functional areas of operating and managing hospitality operations including sales and promotion, food and beverage management and rooms division management.
The Tourism major offers students a complete grounding in tourism management in both Australian and international contexts. This major aims to equip students with an understanding of important concepts related to tourist behaviour and the tourist experience, destination planning, sustainability and the management of tourism operations.
The Health and Wellness major examines the factors shaping the spa experience and the health and wellness industry in both a local and international context. Gaining knowledge through areas such as managing spa properties, health and wellness tourism resources, marketing and special interest tourism, students engage with the complexities of operating and managing within these sectors.
In each major, students also have the opportunity to select from a diverse range of electives, depending on their interests and desired career direction, such as the cruise business, coastal and marine tourism, wine studies, special interest tourism, sport tourism, convention and exhibition planning and event operations management.
Our majors and elective choices introduce students to a range of operational and managerial practices that they may then apply to organisations within Australia and overseas.
To apply for this program, students must meet the following criteria:
- Hold a qualification equivalent to Australian Year 12 with the required entry grade
- Proficiency in English (IELTS score of 6.0 overall)
