Why study the Master of International Hotel and Tourism Management?

This program has undergone a review and it is intended that this be withdrawn from offering in the near future. Please see the Master of Tourism, Hotel & Event Management for details of our new alternative program.

The Master of International Hotel and Tourism Management is designed for students wishing to study hospitality, tourism, recreation and/or event management at the postgraduate level. Prior specific knowledge of the area is not essential. This innovative program enables graduates to accelerate their careers within the tourism, hotel, recreation and event industries and current managers to attain formal qualifications to enhance their future management progression. Students undertake an independent study report which is industry orientated and less research intensive than a thesis.

The program comprises a group of common core courses and a suite of specialist courses from one of three fields; Travel and Tourism Management, Hotel Management, and Event Management. The Master of International Hotel and Tourism Management (Advanced) includes the common core and two fields or one field and a research thesis.
