One of the largest industries in the world, travel and tourism management has rapidly expanded in recent years. Post-pandemic travel will create a whole new range of opportunities and will require nuanced skill sets to meet pent-up consumer demand and changing industry standards. Beginning in Fall 2021, the Jonathan M. Tisch Center of Hospitality will offer the NEW MS in Travel and Tourism Management, designed to provide students with a deep understanding of this fast-growing industry, while equipping them to adapt to emerging trends including sustainable tourism, cultural heritage tourism, and bleisure travel. This innovative degree will afford the benefits and resources of studying at NYU, while immersing you in New York City—the world’s premier destination for international travel.
Travel and tourism management involves the coordination, planning, marketing, and delivery of travel services. Examples of travel and tourism organizations and entities include destinations, attractions, airlines, cruise lines, museums, cultural institutions, and travel and tourism related booking services. The tourism sector includes both leisure travel and business travel.
