HRTM12-206: Tourism Analysis and Evaluation


Tourism operators, investors and government management authorities increasingly rely on research data to inform decisions that aim to maximise returns on both private and public investment. This subject introduces students to relevant tourism databases and assists them to develop skills in analysing and reporting data in formats that are accessible to various tourism stakeholder groups. The skills developed in this subject are important for anybody in an operational management role who has to read and interpret tourism data in order to make decisions or for those who aspire to work for government or semi-government tourism management organisations where they will be required to conduct analysis and communicate results to stakeholders.
