Hospitality & Tourism
Manaakitanga me Te Ao Tāpoi

The New Zealand Hospitality and Tourism industry is evolving in exciting new ways.

Learn how you can be a part of an industry that promotes New Zealand’s top attractions and destinations and is leading the way when it comes to environmental sustainability.

What’s more, the Nelson-Tasman region is one of New Zealand’s tourism hot spots, making it a great place to study and gain real-world experience.

With programmes that offer great support and the opportunity to be at the forefront of a new wave of hospitality and tourism, you can be sure that you’ll graduate with the skills you need to succeed.

NMIT’s programmes provide a direct pathway into employment through New Zealand Certificates that give you practical customer service and sales skills for a range of frontline jobs.

Our Diploma options offer a step up to supervisory or management positions and are a great option for people with previous experience or qualifications who want to elevate their career. The New Zealand Diplomas in the Tourism and Hospitality Management programme will allow you the option to evolve into a dynamic manager that can work across both industries and lead to both the Diploma in Hospitality, Level 5 and the Diploma in Tourism and Travel, Level 5.

With courses in managing people, effective industry marketing, operation and management practices, digital technology and event management, you’ll come away with the skills to lead and manage a tourism business or hospitality establishment.

Programmes are delivered via a blend of real-world learning, research, work placements, field trips and classroom lessons, as well as hands-on hospitality experience in our on-campus restaurant, Rata Room.

You’ll connect with local tourism operators, make valuable contacts in the industry, and potentially even land a job before you graduate.
