Bronze award for Western Sydney University tourism program
Western Sydney University was awarded a bronze award at the 2017 NSW Tourism Awards, during a gala event in Sydney last night.
The University was selected as one of just four national finalists in the ‘Tourism Education and Training’ category – which recognises organisations that demonstrate excellence in raising professional standards within the tourism industry.
Professor Kevin Dunn, Dean of the School of Social Science and Psychology, says Western Sydney University is a proud training provider for the tourism industry in Australia.
“Our Bachelor of Tourism Management is a 3-year undergraduate degree with a focus on tourism history, development and theory, professional standards and practical application,” says Professor Dunn.
“This Bronze award is a well-deserved acknowledgement of the success of the Bachelor of Tourism Management program, as well as the University’s commitment to tourism excellence.”
The NSW Tourism Award follows the University’s success in achieving a ‘Top 100 in the World’ global ranking in Tourism and Hospitality Management teaching and research.
