About

Channel your adventurous spirit, business acumen and lust for travel into a rewarding career. Whether for pleasure or business, tourism professionals are responsible for promoting dream destinations, devising profitable visitor campaigns, and arranging entertaining tours and holidays in destinations far and wide.

The Bachelor of Business (International Tourism) will equip you with the skills needed for a successful career in this growing and dynamic business sector. Every organisation in the tourism industry requires professionals with skills to attract, accommodate and entertain tourists with the aim of increasing revenue. This course aims to skill you in all areas of tourism business operations – identifying challenges and assessing solutions.

Work Integrated Learning (WIL) subjects are built into your degree, meaning you’ll have an organised internship as part of your degree.

Our impressive network of industry partners provide invaluable industry insight and experience. When it is time to embark on your industry training, we work closely with them to find a suitable placement that is the best fit for your skills, interests and professional goals. Your industry training could take you to a major city, regional area in Australia or an international city. Not only is this an invaluable experience, it is also a chance to grow your professional network. For many of our graduates this experience introduces them to their future employers.

The teaching of this course integrates the practical experience of industry specialists with a more formal academic approach, providing you with a practical perspective on today’s business sector.
