Our Program

Humber’s Bachelor of Commerce – Hospitality and Tourism Management degree program has been designed to meet the demands of employers for the strategic, technological and managerial skills considered necessary in this exciting and dynamic industry.

The program incorporates a “best of both worlds” approach: the theory and knowledge you gain from a traditional degree program in business administration and tourism studies, along with experiential learning in tourism industry sectors. Throughout the program, you will engage in analyzing a series of business and management scenarios for which you will prepare recommendations and solutions. The program also provides an international perspective through case studies that reflect the global nature of the tourism industry.

In years one and two, you will be introduced to fundamental business concepts, including marketing, finance, accounting, economics and law. In years three and four, you will focus on advanced hospitality and tourism industry management, and the application of technology in tourism strategy, marketing and distribution systems. You will use software applications and apply advanced financial management skills to tourism business operations and performance.

What sets our Hospitality and Tourism Management degree apart is the fact that it is an integrated bachelor’s degree, meaning you will acquire professional experience while attending classes. You will interact with the industry through career placements and projects, and you will be guided by professors with extensive, real-world experience in research, education and industry. You’ll have a competitive edge in the tourism business world, both in Canada and internationally, or, additionally, you may use your skills and expertise to continue with graduate studies.
