Bachelor of Tourism, Innovation and Development

Course Overview

The revised programme is designed in response to industry needs in Namibia and the SADC region. A need for qualified tourism management experts in both the public and private sectors was identified and confirmed through consultation with industry key stakeholders and Programme Advisory Committee. Tourism is one of the fastest growing sectors in Namibia and highly labour intensive (see for example, Namibia’s Skills Deficit Report 2010, Tourism Human Resource Strategy for Namibia, 2011, Tourism and Hospitality Sector Skills Plan, 2015 & National Human Resource Plan, 2010-2015). As Namibia strives towards its national developmental goals and the realization of vision 2030, theses qualified individuals will contribute greatly to the attainment of relevant objectives pursued by both the Namibian Government and international partners. Against this background, there is a need, therefore, to develop human resource capacity to render services to this industry.

Further, the Bachelor of Tourism Innovation and Development is revised to ensure its continued relevance in terms of the national development needs as well as employment creation. The revised programme is also consistent with the vision of NUST, i.e. to be a premier university of science and technology, preparing leaders for the knowledge economy.

The programme is fully compliant with requirements of NQF and the NUST Curriculum Framework.
