The University of Johannesburg's School of Tourism and Hospitality (STH) in the newly launched College of Business and Economics was ranked 34th globally, (only African university), for Hospitality and Tourism Management by global ShanghaiRankings. We are also scored 1st in Hospitality and Leisure Studies by QS rankings. A great achievement for the University of Johannesburg and the STH. The STH is very satisfied with the affirmations from these rankings and fully acknowledges the role of industry in ensuring that we reach these hallmark milestones.
Last year through the pledges made by industry, partners and alumni, the STH was able to raise R2.2 million. The funds raised have assisted 40 students to continue and or complete their studies in Tourism and Hospitality Management in the 2017 academic year.
This year, the University of Johannesburg is once again raising funds for the missing middle. The STH is embracing the spirit of fundraising in support of these students and is calling on you, to help raise funds towards the students tuition.#WedoTourism

Although the budget for overall education in South Africa has progressively improved, the critical challenges of equality and access have lagged.
