What our academics say

Dr Mike Raybould

Associate Professor of Tourism Management

“There are few better places in the world to study hotel and tourism management than Australia’s Gold Coast, where inspiring natural and built environments attract over 10 million visitors a year and an abundance of hotels, resorts and theme parks provide a living laboratory for learning about this industry. You will benefit from our amazing industry links and small classes where you get to know all the lecturers and other students.

Managing a hotel or tourism organisation involves managing people and assets to provide memorable service experiences for customers. It requires business skills in marketing, human resource management, accounting, and creativity and the Diploma of International Hotel and Tourism Management at Bond University College is a great place to start acquiring those skills and building experience”.
