Tourism is the fastest growing industry in the world, contributing 9.3% to the world economy [1]. The UN World Tourism Organization[2] forecasts that by 2020 over 1.56 billion international travelers will make journeys from their home countries. This unprecedented growth means there will be a need for tourism professionals to serve the industry now and in the future. The Tourism School (in time) will provide courses on aspects of tourism planning, management and sustainable development for those planning to join the industry.

A school is a large organizational structure which can contain various departments and divisions. The departments and divisions should be listed in the departments and divisions section. The school should not contain any learning resources. The school can contain projects for developing learning resources.

Divisions and departments[edit]

Divisions and Departments of the School exist on pages in "topic" namespace. Start the name of departments with the "Topic:" prefix; departments reside in the Topic: namespace. Departments and divisions link to learning materials and learning projects. Divisions can link subdivisions or to departments. For more information on schools, divisions and departments look at the Naming Conventions.
