Tourism being one of the world’s largest industry, its size and scope necessitate a full introduction course for learners. Tourism is growing, dynamic, and global, with a tremendous economic, environmental and cultural impact. It is both a product and a service. This course introduces all 5 sectors of the industry and is designed to help the learner identify the factors which influence the industry in both positive and negative ways as well as what motivates people to partake in tourism activities.
In order to be effective in a global world, more specifically in the tourism industry, people must have high cultural intelligence. Cultural intelligence (CQ) is a rich and dynamic skill set that can be developed through self-awareness and study. Learners in this course will develop skills they can take with them and use at work, at home, abroad, or in any setting where cross-cultural awareness, understanding, and interaction is required. The focus is on developing competence in cross-cultural communication in a variety of settings related to the tourism industry.
As the restaurant and food service industry is often the entry level position for numerous businesses in the tourism industry, this is an essential course for graduates of the Tourism Management program. The purpose of this course is to provide the student with an introduction to the world of restaurant and food service operations. More specifically, the course will provide an opportunity to understand the structure, nature and operating characteristics of food service as well as being able to identify the role of managers in the food service industry and to highlight their principal responsibilities.
