Business, Tourism and Management

A knowledge of business and business processes can be useful in many different jobs including roles within the administrative and clerical job family, accountancy, banking and finance, retail sales and customer services. It will also be useful if you are thinking about setting up your own business or being self-employed in the future. Economics bridges the gap between science subjects and humanities and is highly regarded by universities. It combines very well with mathematics and subjects like business, government and politics, history and geography. Economics students typically follow careers in accountancy, finance and business analysis in both the private and public sectors.

Travel and Tourism

Travel and Tourism is an industry that is built to last.

Although things might be worrying for travel brands, they won’t stay this way forever. The broad ‘travel and tourism industry’ encompasses many service sectors and, in total, accounts for approximately 10% of the world’s GDP. Countless people, governments, and businesses rely on the industry’s continued existence.

If there’s anything we can learn from the recent past, it’s that the travel industry always recovers from disasters and emerges on the other side more resilient and innovative than ever before. Travel is not only economically significant, but it fulfils a very human urge to get out, connect and explore the world. It’s in everyone’s interest for the industry to bounce back and very exciting to be part of it.

Indeed, the tourism sector offers employment globally, nationally, and locally.

Employment includes working in events, visitor attractions, marketing, human resources, tourism management and development, rural tourism, hotel management, wedding planning, cabin crew, and travel agency.
