The School for the Visitor Economy is a cross-university school providing the local and international hospitality, tourism and event management industries with qualified professionals.
We deliver industry-based programs across all qualification levels, from pre-vocational certificates through to PhDs. We also offer customised accredited training programs designed to meet the specific needs of businesses within the sector. Our courses in hospitality, tourism and event management allow you to build pathways across VU's other offerings related to visitor economy needs, such as food science, transport and logistics, management and marketing, sports management, our prestigious MBA program and many more.
Our courses are informed by key industry partnerships. We work with our many partners to provide you with hands-on experience so you graduate with a professional network and key industry knowledge.
Note: With the visitor economy heavily impacted by bushfires and the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the School for the Visitor Economy is delivering courses remotely. We are working closely with industry in efforts to support business continuity, recovery and long-term resilience building.
