The MBA is the prime management qualification for managers. Designed for your success, the MBA creates distinctive managers with a comprehensive knowledge of the latest business practices. This specialised MBA in Tourism explores the range of concepts of the functions of management within the tourism industry, evaluating how tourism is structured and organised as a business, and how it can be sustainably operated as a destination in the global context.
