eventshospitalityuniversityVictoria University Amplifying its focus on the tourism, hospitality, and event management industries in Australia and around the world, Victoria University (VU) has launched the School for the Visitor Economy, offering accredited training and education – from certificates to PhDs – in one of Australia’s most in-demand employment sectors.VU has had a long-term focus on tourism, event management, and hospitality that dates back to the 1970s. Through its School for the Visitor Economy, VU’s Polytechnic, Higher Education, and Research divisions will all collaborate for the first time to embrace exciting future opportunities.School for the Visitor Economy Director Dr Joanne Pyke said VU students can move seamlessly between courses, while completing work-integrated-learning and on-the-job internships with partners such as the RACV Club, QUEST Serviced Apartments, and Melbourne Exhibition and Convention Centre.Dr Pyke said the need for qualified and skilled staff has never been greater as businesses face growing skills gaps and recruitment shortages.“Our graduates will have a wide choice of opportunities in Victoria, Australia and overseas, ranging from entry-level jobs in hotels and restaurants to executive roles within industry and government.”Australia’s visitor economy is forecast to expand by more than four per cent a year in the near future according to Austrade data, generating $150 billion a year. It currently employs one million workers (or eight per cent of Australia’s workforce) who produce goods and services for direct visitor use such as hotels, restaurants and attractions, as well as indirect goods and services, including construction and information technology.
