As the industry reforms and develops innovative strategies, products and approaches that will lead a recovery over the next three to five years, there’ll be increasing need for skilled professionals to lead the rebuild. There will be a need to replace those who left the sector, as well as graduates with a mix of traditional knowledge and updated thinking that fits the new-look global tourism industry.
