Why study Master of International Sustainable Tourism Management?

By drawing on best practice in the tourism industry, policy governance and research, the Master of International Sustainable Tourism Management equips students with a comprehensive understanding of the relationship between tourism and sustainable development, with a particular emphasis on emerging economies and the development of small and medium sized enterprises within them.

Sustainability represents an increasingly influential facet of tourism planning, development, governance and management, encompassing a diversity of sectors as the industry continues to expand globally. The United Nations World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) is also forecasting that the growth rate for emerging economies will be double the rate of advanced economies in the years leading to 2030 and that a sustainable industry can therefore play a significant role in the achievement of the millennium development goals.

There is a growing demand for well-qualified managers who not only have a broad and deep understanding of global business activity, but a clear insight into the consequences of planning and policy-making on the environment, society, culture and the economy.

This course looks at how tourism can be compatible with the development of sustainable organisations, urban and rural development/regeneration, natural resource management and wildlife conservation, as well as the diversifying benefits from international and domestic tourism. It facilitates the development of skills and techniques to develop tourism policies and practices in a global setting and to management tourism development and enterprises in the direction of more sustainable practice.

Students are encouraged to take part of their studies overseas in order to broad their understanding of the international market and the role that a sustainable tourism industry can play in emerging economies. The course provides students with the opportunity to attend a partially funded intensive field school to study the patterns of development within an emerging economy in the Asia-Pacific such as Fiji, Vietnam or Cambodia.
