Diploma in Tourism and Hospitality Management


The need for Tourism and Hospitality diplomas and above qualifications across Asia is becoming increasingly obvious as regional economies are showing sustained robust growth. With this, the increasing liberalization of trade internationally is driving the need for professionals with advanced

business skills and knowledge. Currently, neither local nor regional educational providers have the capacity to meet this rising demand for Tourism and Hospitality qualifications, and ERCI aims, in part, to satisfy this demand by delivering quality diploma programmes focused on innovation, entrepreneurship, practical relevance and a passion for excellence.
