    Course Summary

    A BA in Global Tourism Management from Royal Roads University will prepare you well for an MBA, or for a career in one of the fastest growing industries in Canada and many other countries all around the world. 

    You’ll learn all about the many opportunities, trends and problem issues likely to face the global tourism industry in the next decade. You’ll gain the skills, knowledge and mental tools you’ll need to found or improve your career nearly anywhere in the world.

    This is typically taken as a ‘degree completion program’, and assumes that you have already completed 2 years of post-secondary education or their equivalent. It can be a 4 year program, however, and this option is particularly attractive to international students who may not have access to fully compatible post-secondary education options, as well as to Canadian students who wish to have their entire degree experience from a single university. 

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.
