The worldwide travel & tourism industry continued to see strong growth throughout 2016 and international tourist arrivals are predicted to grow by 3-4% per year and reach 1.8 billion in 2030, according to the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) report.
The UNWTO long-term outlook Tourism Towards 2030 sees substantial potential for further growth coming from emerging economy destinations in Asia, Latin America, Central and Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Africa, growing at double the rate (+4.4% per year) than advanced economy destinations (+2.2% per year).
Due to the continuous growth of the labour-intensive and productivity-reliant travel and tourism industry, the sector is expected to experience some difficulties in providing enough qualified talent for the forecast 80 million new jobs created over the next ten years, according to the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC).
To make matters worse, employers are hesitant to employ graduates for their entry-level positions without having previously worked for their organizations, either through paid internships, industrial placements or vacation work.
At B.H.M.S., students are required to complete three semester-long internships as part of their Bachelor Degree Program and often join one of these companies after graduation.
