Our vision is to be the first choice for students who wish to become future leaders in the tourism industry, to ground our degree in cutting-edge research and to strengthen our industry collaboration to the benefit of all our students.

The Department of Tourism Management offers numerous postgraduate programmes. 


Programmes offered:

  • the internationally benchmarked BCom Honours programmes
  • postgraduate programmes, including master's and doctoral programmes in Tourism Management

Our students are our main focus

The students in our Department are exposed to the best academic programmes and content covering all the important sectors of the tourism industry. The sound academic foundation is supported by industry exposure through close cooperative agreements.

The Department arranges for industry experts to deliver guest lectures on a regular basis to give students insight and a general feel for what the industry expects of them. Workshop are also offered to all students.

On honours level, students experience the real-life challenge of an educational excursion, nationally or internationally, to do a destination competitiveness analysis. This involves intense research, a visit to the destination and a comprehensive written report on the project.

We are building a brighter tourism management future!
