The MSc in International Tourism and Convention Management develops students’ knowledge and management skills by blending strategic perspectives with effective implementations in the tourism and convention sectors.

“These are exceptional programmes offered in an international city by a world-class school,” said Professor Kaye Chon, Dean and Chair Professor of the SHTM and Walter Kwok Foundation Professor in International Hospitality Management.

Indeed, the SHTM’s world-leading programmes are known for its international focus while recognising the Asian context. The flexible delivery pattern and modes of study allow students to complete their study in 1 year. They can expect to be taught in a variety of ways including lectures, seminars, workshops and site visits all designed to enhance their learning experience and to give them exposure to theoretical and practical based challenges.

“Based in the heart of the booming Asia-Pacific region, and with Hong Kong’s proximity to Mainland China, the SHTM is best placed to provide international education to meet the specific demands of a global industry,” observed Professor Chon.
