Today we are faced with profound challenges associated with environmental degradation and ecological instability. Tourism is a significant contributor to but is also a potential alleviator of these threats. This relationship between tourism and the environment is a central theme of the BSc Tourism programme. Critical issues are addressed in the programme relating to environmental understandings and decision-making processes, sustainable development, and natural resource management. Alumni of the programme have taken up the challenge of finding innovative means of confronting these environmental concerns by pursuing a range of environment-focused master degrees, including Environmental Sciences, Climate Change Mitigation, Marine Development and Protection, Forest and Nature Conservation, and Disaster Management.
Given the economic magnitude of the tourism sector on a global scale and the increasing importance of tourism to local communities and entire countries in terms of employment and income, it is not surprising that many BTO alumni have chosen masters’ programme related to business and economics. Whether their interests lie in studying the political economy of tourism or developing a career in the business management, BTO graduates have pursued such MSc degrees as International Business Administration, Marketing Management, Consumer Studies, and Economic Geography.
