The Postgraduate Diploma in International Tourism Management produces graduates who can plan developments, mitigate negative impacts and understand processes that create value in the marketplace.
- The tourism industry is the world's largest industry and employs more people than any other industry on a global scale. It's a vital source of foreign exchange earnings and job creation. Domestic tourism is also vital to the economy — by some measures it is bigger than international tourism.

- Students who wish to embark on more advanced papers in tourism may choose to enrol directly in the one year postgraduate diploma.
- The postgraduate diploma also caters for those already in the industry who wish to enhance their skills and knowledge base at a more advanced level.
