The purpose of this qualification is to develop the ability of the student to question, analyze and interpret tourism and hospitality management issues within a global context with a focus on industry specific sectors. This purpose is achieved through the delivery of a research-based dissertation at the Masters Level where the student will show evidence of scientific research and the ability to reflect in the context of tourism and hospitality management. The programme therefore assists in the continuing professional development of managers and leaders in tourism and hospitality management.

Admission Requirements

The minimum admission requirement is a Postgraduate Diploma or Bachelor of Tourism and Hospitality Management Honours or an equivalent qualification at NQF level 8 with an average of 65%. In addition, the student must be able to develop a research proposal for the intended research project. The selection and allocation of postgraduate students depend on the availability of supervisors.

Selection Process

The selection of Master’s students will be done in accordance with rules and regulations of the Higher Degrees Committee of the University of Johannesburg as stipulated for inter-disciplinary programs. The School of Tourism and Hospitality (STH) Research Committee may prescribe a module or modules, at NQF LEVEL 8 or 9 as a supportive measure to successfully complete the qualification. This applies when the STH Research Committee concludes that the student’s knowledge of research needs to be updated or when the research topic extends to issues insufficiently covered at the graduate level.
