Certificate in Tourism Studies (CTS)

In recent years tourism has developed as an industry employing large number of people. Numerous operational areas in tourism also offer immense opportunities for entrepreneurs to establish their own business big or small. Yet Tourism Studies as an academic discipline is not very well developed. Opportunities for its study are also limited.
