What is a PhD in Tourism and Hospitality? A PhD in Tourism and Hospitality prepares program participants for careers in research and teaching related to business management of the hospitality and tourism industries. Coursework may include research design, statistics, psychology, sociology, and marketing. Some topics that may be covered include contemporary issues in travel and tourism, financial economics, international business management, organizational theory, database management systems, telecommunication and networking, systems analysis and design, and consumer behavior. Students entering this type of program should already possess excellent communication skills and analytical skills.
Graduates with a PhD in Tourism and Hospitality develop skills in critical thinking, intensive research, data collection, and scholarly writing while pursuing scholarship and pedagogy. They gain a solid business background and study influencing factors in tourism and hospitality.
The cost of the PhD varies, contingent on the educational institution you attend, the length of the academic program, and the country of study. Programs can take three to eight years to complete. Research your program and contact the departments for admissions and fee information.
Career prospects with a PhD are usually geared toward becoming professors involved in teaching and research at an academic institution. Other possibilities include positions as postsecondary education administrators or leaders in the tourism management, hospitality, and hotel and restaurant management fields.
