Love to work in the tourism industry and marketing? Become part of the booming global tourism sector with USQ’s Bachelor of Business and Commerce (Marketing and Hospitality Management). Through a partnership between USQ and TAFE, you will graduate from your degree with two qualifications – a Diploma of Hospitality from TAFE and a Bachelor of Business and Commerce (Marketing and Hospitality Management) from USQ.

You will first complete a Diploma of Hospitality at TAFE or an equivalent accredited body, and then apply directly to USQ to complete your Bachelor of Business and Commerce courses. You will also need to apply to have your studies assessed for credit towards the Bachelor of Business and Commerce.

With practical industry experience in hospitality at TAFE, combined with a thorough understanding of the principles and practices of contemporary marketing through your USQ degree, you will have all the necessary knowledge and skills to manage any hospitality environment.
