    Hi,

    I would like to know if someone can suggest an Online Master's Degree in Tourism. I was born and studied in the Philippines. I have 2 years study in Business Management and 4 years Bachelor Degree in Tourism. My first language is Filipino and 2nd language is English.

    I have several experiences regarding the field and the now I am working as a Supervisor - Reservation and Ticketing here in Oman (Middle East) for almost 7 years. I tried to search online but I have no success.

    Thanks in advance.

    Regards,

    Debz

    I know that there are a small number of MBA programs that have "Hospitality" as a concentration. I believe they are geared for people seeking management positions in hotels/resorts.

    Not really the same thing. Some hospitality programs might include tourism electives, but probably just one. The OP really needs to look up tourism.

    To understand the distinction, a hospitality professional would manage a hotel, resort, or restaurant operations. It's a business degree.
    A tourism graduate would be a travel agent, concierge, wine country tour guide, or even work for a resort or historical building giving tours. It's a customer service degree.

    Agreed with cookderosa and that is what I am looking at. I am a Travel Agent and t's really hard to find the Master's Degree which is related to my field of work.
