New Master of Tourism Management at Lincoln University
Lincoln University in New Zealand have just launched a new Master of Tourism Management programme. The programme provides students with the opportunity to become involved directly in managing and planning the world's biggest people industry – tourism.
The new qualification is part of the second oldest and longest running academic tourism programme in New Zealand and draws on expertise and research by Lincoln University's Centre for Land, Environment and People (LEaP), which is a national leader and international centre of excellence in tourism research and consultancy.
As well as looking at the key principles of tourism management, the Lincoln University programme offers modules on the social science of tourism, and the ability to choose modules on the topics of natural resource management, conservation biology, wildlife management, and Māori resource management – topics that are very specific to the type of nature tourism on offer in New Zealand.
So, if you are interested in tourism management, but want to work somewhere a little bit different after graduation, this could be the qualification for you.
Lincoln University will be joining us at the Study Options Open Days in March 2015. These free events give you the opportunity to meet a number of Australian and New Zealand universities and find out more about wide range of programmes that each has to offer.
