Tourism in the Newcastle Business School actively engages in research and teaching in a number of areas, including tourism management, sports management, events, and hospitality. Academics in Tourism are committed to sustainability as a concept, practice, and guiding principle through high quality research. Each individual works closely with industry and the wider community to enhance community resiliency through conducting research, facilitating learning, building new knowledge, solving complex problems, and improving practice. Tourism as a whole also engages industry in creating and servicing more vibrant and sustainable communities.

The Tourism Study Area is a nationally award winning group as recognised by a Tourism Training Australia National Award in 2010. Sustainability is embedded in the courses that underpin the majors of Tourism Management and Sports Management in the Bachelor of Business and Bachelor of Social Science degrees. Tourism and Sports Management courses are designed to nurture global citizenry and cultural competencies in our students through experiential education, work integrated learning, and outbound mobility programs, which also ensure that our graduates are well prepared to work in the global leisure, tourism, and sport industries. These courses are taught at our Newcastle and Central Coast campuses.
