SPECIAL FEATURES

The Tourism and Travel Industry - 10 credits

The tourism industry is exciting and dynamic, with people constantly seeking new and memorable experiences like staying overnight in an aquarium, hiking to the base camp of Mount Everest or sailing through the Greek islands. How people book and experience travel has evolved to include virtual reality, online travel agents, low cost airlines, and electronic tickets and visas. What hasn’t changed, and continues to grow in importance, is the economic value tourism provides to a region or country. This module looks at the trends that have developed in the industry and how they have shaped its direction. Interesting case studies will highlight how tourism and travel companies have responded to this change. 

Communication and Marketing - 20 credits

Explore the world of digital marketing, social media and Google analytics as you look at how tourism and travel businesses market their products, in New Zealand and internationally. How do businesses form a strategy and what do they need to consider? In this module you will draft a campaign for a tourism business and then use multimedia to present it to the other students. You will also be introduced to virtual reality (VR), which is further explored at degree level. So, get ready to travel the world virtually as you learn how this technology can be used to promote products and places. 

Maori Tourism - 10 credits

People travel to New Zealand from all across the globe to experience our unique Maori culture. This module celebrates the companies that have truly embedded Maori culture and the Manaakitanga and Tikanga practices in their business. You will visit iwi owned tourism businesses, and experience how Maori tourism is currently being showcased to the world. You will also explore the barriers and opportunities for Maori tourism and its future potential.

Environmental Sustainability - 10 credits

Environmental sustainability is critical to business practices these days. Tourists are increasingly demanding that their activities have minimal environmental impact and eco-tourism is on the rise. From pristine beaches and coral reefs, to whale watching and hiking, tourists expect their travel destinations and activities to be clean and environmentally responsible. How do we encourage companies to operate in a more eco-friendly way? Who is responsible for protecting the environment? This module examines the influencers in environmentally sustainable tourism. You will visit local businesses to gauge their response to environmental sustainability and then put together an evaluation and proposal as part of your assessment. 

Strategic Leadership - 10 credits

This amazing module will show you how inspirational leaders guide a business through change. You will learn how innovation and creativity are linked to change and examine the different management styles needed to manage change. Discover how effective leaders communicate change, cast the vision, create a sense of urgency, and manage conflict caused by change. You will also go on a journey of self-discovery by learning about your own leadership style and response to change.

Business Strategic Systems - 10 credits

This module is set in the context of a travel agency and will have you analysing the different travel agencies and the strategies they use to develop the business. Discover the role of wholesale travel companies, GSA’s (General Sales Agent) and OTA’s (Online Travel Agents) as you compare the different ways travel products are sold. Create a sales plan that encompasses some of the marketing tools learnt earlier to ensure a high visitor experience and business sustainability.

Design a Tourism Business - 20 credits

In this module you will bring together the learning from previous modules to draft a plan for a small tourism venture. You will work in a team to develop the plan and then pitch it to the rest of the students to gain feedback. This is a great opportunity to learn how to practically apply the theory you have learnt, and demonstrate your creativity and innovation.

New Zealand / International Internship - 30 credits

Students with high attendance who have passed all their diploma modules may be offered a paid internship with a New Zealand or international tourism company. Internships begin at week 26 and last for a minimum of 300 hours.
