This course comprises study at TasTAFE, or an equivalent institution, and at the University of Tasmania. Students who complete the Advanced Diploma of Tourism Management from TasTAFE, or an equivalent qualification, articulate into the Bachelor of Business Administration (Tourism Management) which is offered by the Tasmanian School of Business and Economics (TSBE) at the University of Tasmania. Students are granted 14 units of advanced standing and complete the final 10 units required for the degree with TSBE.

IMPORTANT: The BBA(Tourism Management) is not available to International students on the Launceston campus due to a large proportion of the course being taught via distance only.

The course is designed to produce graduates with a sound knowledge of the fundamental principles and concepts of management, a familiarity with significant literature in the field and the ability to review, consolidate, extend and apply the knowledge and techniques to the tourism management sector. It seeks to produce graduates with knowledge, skills and with an understanding of best practice in tourism management, who recognise the value of research, critical thinking and effective communication. Graduates develop professional skills in such areas as interpersonal communication, services management, team work, report writing and problem-solving techniques. The course provides holders of a Tasmanian TAFE Advanced Diploma of Tourism Management or equivalent qualification with the opportunity to gain a professional university degree in tourism management.

The Course Learning Outcomes are:

  • Critically apply a broad, coherent and in-depth knowledge of foundational and contemporary business theories, concepts and principles to a range of organisational settings including large multinational firms, small local business, and social enterprises.
  • Effectively communicate in written and oral form complex business ideas to a broad range of audiences. This includes the ability to argue for an idea, persuade, defend a proposition, negotiate a win-win outcome, and execute a business focussed presentation to a diverse audience.
  • Obtain, critically analyse, interpret and apply data to complex business problems in a range of organisational settings.
  • Exercise judgement and intellectual independence to provide evidence-based solutions to a range of business tasks in complex and changing organisational contexts.
