The MS in Tourism Management provides students with a comprehensive understanding of the global tourism industry. Making full use of its location in New York City—the world’s premier destination for international travel and business—the program integrates academic theory with real-world application so you can excel in this multibillion-dollar industry.
The program prepares you for travel and tourism roles in the public, private and voluntary sector. It challenges you to discover new ways in which technology can support a destination, explores how to attract and retain visitor markets, and how to manage tourism effectively and sustainably. Faculty members are respected experts in areas such as cultural heritage tourism, community tourism development, visitor management and public policy.
This 36-credit, full– or part-time program of study consists of a sequence of core courses, electives in specialized areas, and a capstone project whereby students carry out a research and consulting project for industry organizations. It is international in scope, and reflects the opportunities and challenges tourism managers face in today’s globalized world.
