Opportunities and Outcomes
One of the largest industries in the world, hospitality and tourism is growing fast due to the disappearance of cultural and business boundaries among nations. No longer just a luxury, travel has become a necessity for many people. Combine this with population growth, higher incomes, and increased leisure time, and hospitality and tourism management becomes one of the hottest sectors in the job market.
Many individuals are able to advance in the hospitality and tourism industry with hands-on experience only, however those with industry-related graduate degrees tend to have more opportunity to advance in their careers at a faster pace and with more professional options from which to choose.
The NYU School of Professional Studies Jonathan M. Tisch Center for Hospitality and Tourism provides students in the MS in Tourism Management program with a wealth of divisional support services and opportunities that complement classroom learning.
Due to new and expanding international markets and an opportunity-rich, cross-cultural environment created by globalization, the hospitality and tourism industries require professionals who can assume leadership roles to increase revenue for organizations or entrepreneurial ventures, champion quality service, manage human capital, implement strategic and ethical decisions, and develop innovative sustainable projects. Tisch Center graduate programs provide you with the knowledge and the strategic skills to manage change; to communicate successfully; and to advance the business of hospitality and tourism.
