Nourish your potential for a managerial, leadership and senior planning role in this vibrant global industry.

Tourism is one of the largest contributors to the growing global economy, and a vital component in Aotearoa-New Zealand’s success as a nation. However along with most of the wider travel and hospitality sectors, tourism has been hit hard by the global COVID-19 crisis. 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 people to lead the rebuild. The Graduate Diploma in Tourism Management is part of an established programme that is respected internationally. When you graduate, you’ll have an understanding of the industry at all levels covering both theory and practice, and be ready for positions of leadership and responsibility that help lead the recovery of tourism in New Zealand or further afield.
