It is also about customer engagement, adventure tour companies, destination planning and marketing, and boutique inns – creating experiences and memories that last a lifetime. Careers in tourism and hospitality are available locally and around the world. Here in Burkina, the tourism and hospitality industry is an exciting, vibrant and rapidly growing sector. Students in our program benefit from small class sizes, flexible learning options, experiential learning, and faculty who have a wide range of research interests and industry experience. Whether you have aspirations of running your own hotel or managing a catering company, the BA (Hons) Tourism and Hospitality Management will equip you with the skills needed to do so successfully. Management knowledge, technical skills and valuable insights into an increasingly complex and dynamic area are the hallmarks of our Bachelor of Tourism and Hospitality Management degree.
