"I have one of the best 'seats' in the house. I experience first-hand all of the interesting work behind the scenes to arrange a professional sporting event."

Bachelor of Business in International Tourism Management

Study Tourism

Whether you’re pursuing a career in luxury travel, resorts, events and entertainment or travel management, a degree gives you transferable skills for a diverse career in one of the world’s largest and fastest-growing industries.

As climate change, overtourism and digital disruption continue to occur, our shared major in Tourism Management as part of the Bachelor of Business and Enterprise addresses the sustainability challenges facing the tourism, hospitality and events industries and develops the management skills you’ll need to work and thrive in these professional environments.

Our degrees place strong emphasis on applied knowledge and include internships. Strong industry connections facilitate work placements both overseas and in Australia and our long-standing partnership with The Hotel School in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and on Hayman Island also enables extensive internship opportunities and networking.

With responsible enterprise and sustainability underpinning your knowledge, a Southern Cross degree will have you well-prepared for a satisfying and successful long-term career in tourism management, hotel operations or hospitality.
