Description


 

MGI’s BCom in Tourism Management degree provides a different and much needed model of higher education in this discipline as students are provided with a solid grounding in the academic theory underpinning the main concepts of the field of Travel and Tourism Management.


 

The curriculum includes a substantial practical component, culminating in an industry internship that forms part of the final year curriculum. Also included in the curriculum are relevant, more generalized modules. Such modules include an Introduction to Financial Accounting and Business English.


 

Coupled with the curriculum model as described, students also undertake field trips that are based on research projects, practical assignments, and case studies.
