Tourism is one of the world's largest industries, and the Graduate Certificate in Sustainable Tourism Management will equip you with an understanding of globally sustainable tourism principles and their management.
This course will introduce you to the concepts of the triple bottom line approach, which recognises the need for tourism services and products to be environmental, economically and socio-culturally sustainable. You will develop a greater awareness of the negative impacts of unplanned growth and its linked stresses. You will learn how to manage tourism in natural and protected areas and how to apply sustainability concepts. You will also learn how to apply the core elements of sustainability to the development and ongoing management of tourism businesses and destinations.
You may also wish to advance your knowledge and skills further and can do so via CQUniversity's Master of Sustainable Tourism Management.
As a graduate of this course, you will increase your opportunities of being employed in middle or top management positions within the tourism industry, government agencies, non-profit organisations and other organisations with a focus on sustainability. You may also wish to extend your tourism study by continuing with CQUniversity's Master of Sustainable Tourism Management.
