Bachelor of Commerce Tourism

Tourism is the perfect avenue if you're interested in combining your work with travel. It focuses on the behaviour and motivation of tourists and the businesses which service them as well as the economic and social impacts of tourism.

By studying a commerce degree, you'll develop an understanding of the importance of management and marketing and you'll extend your skills base. Research, critical thinking and analysis are all part of the study of tourism within the structure of a commerce degree. You'll also gain an understanding of the principles of hospitality, which is closely linked to tourism management.


Globally tourism is already one of the main income earners for an increasing number of countries. Some estimates indicate that travel and tourism are responsible for approximately 10% of all jobs worldwide.
