Le Cordon Bleu is no longer accepting enrolments in the Le Cordon Bleu Bachelor of Business (Tourism Management) programme.  Both the North Metropolitan TAFE and Le Cordon Bleu are committed to honouring their obligations to students who are currently enrolled in the programme.

The Bachelor of Business (Tourism Management) is delivered through a combination of lectures and tutorials conducted by the North Metropolitan TAFE. This degree gives graduates an entrée into the expanding tourism sector, one that is experiencing niche growth in culinary and gastronomic tourism and event management. Those seeking management roles, marketing, or other business opportunities will benefit from this program, which combines global trends and perspectives with a focus on local development, human resources skills with people-oriented and cross-cultural communication.

Tourism has developed into a sophisticated and flexible industry, supported by significant budgets, cutting edge technologies and complex logistics. Whole communities stand to benefit from the combined efforts of all stakeholders of any tourism enterprise. Tourism therefore offers a wide range of employment opportunities for students interested in fields as diverse as IT, marketing specific localities, supply chain economics and the development of sustainable food and wine trails or conservation and global strategies for business growth. The tourism manager needs to be a hands-on innovator who can deconstruct problems from a range of different perspectives, recognise what it takes to progress and take the lead in delegating or outsourcing to relevant players who can deliver the best results .
