About this course

Tourism contributes billions of dollars to the Queensland economy and employs thousands of people. This active local tourism environment makes the programs at the UQ Business School the ideal forum to learn about this vibrant industry, with the skills you gain applicable in Australia or anywhere in the world.

You'll benefit from UQ's extensive network of industry leaders, many of whom deliver guest lectures and share their perspectives and knowledge, and you'll have the opportunity to establish contacts for the future.

Your study also offers a range of invaluable Work Integrated Learning (WIL) opportunities designed to help you bridge the gap between theory and practice and gain industry experience with tourism and event site visits, the investigation of case studies, and problem-based learning activities.

You'll graduate with an internationally recognised qualification and be ready for success in any number of careers related to tourism, hotel and event management.

The 24-unit Master of Tourism, Hotel and Event Management program is designed for those graduates with a bachelor's degree in the same discipline and therefore does not require students to undertake foundational courses students in the 32-unit program must complete. Both master's programs provide the same study experiences.
