Diploma in Tourism Management

Overview

In the post Covid world, tourism is expected to boom rapidly. Although many hotels have closed, and airlines have reported losses owing to travel bans and lockdowns, the future for the hospitality and tourism industry seems positive and hopeful as countries start to recognize vaccination certificates and open their borders. For instance, the mega budget airline, AirAsia, is positive about its growth outlook and mega hotel groups such as Marriot have even expanded their operations. As such, a course in hospitality and tourism management will provide individuals, with an interest in the industry, with excellent career opportunities in the near future.
