Wherever in the world you want to work, the hospitality and tourism industry provides opportunities like few others. The sector ' ranging from international hotel chains, airlines and tour operators to conference venues, tourist boards and government organisations ' is one of the most diverse and exciting industries around, providing management opportunities worldwide in business operations, marketing, sales, customer service, HR, research, logistics and policy. Employment in this sector is set to grow over the next few years and the demand for senior and specialised roles will increase.
