In recent years tourism has developed as an industry employing large number of people. Numerous operational areas in tourism also offer immense opportunities for entrepreneurs to establish their own business big or small. Yet Tourism Studies as an academic discipline is not very well developed. Opportunities for its study are also limited. A large number of the work force has had no formal study in various aspects of tourism. These programmes have been developed keeping in mind people who in future intend to make their career in some branch of tourism, or are already working in tourism related areas at various levels.

Job/Future Prospects

One may go for employment in the Travel and Tourism Industry (travel agency, hotel, tour operator, etc.) or start own business in the area. In order to pursue academic excellence, one may take up further studies and go for Bachelor's, Master's and / or PhD in Tourism Studies.
