The international tourism and hospitality industries are evolving at a rapid pace. Worldwide tourism remains the globe's largest private employer, but industry consolidations, realignments, and globalization are reshaping the industry's leading organizations.
Only the professional managers who are committed to lifelong learning will remain at the forefront of this dynamic, fast-paced industry. This is what makes the distance-learning Master of Tourism Administration (MTA) program at George Washington University so critical: GW's MTA distance graduate degree is recognized as the advanced credential for tourism professionals.
For 38 years, the GW on-campus MTA program has led the tourism industry with original graduate degree programs. You will find our graduates at the top of their professions. The distance-learning MTA program offers the same world-class graduate education as the on-campus program, but is designed to meet the needs of working professionals around the world and prepare them for career entry or mid-level management positions in public, commercial, or nonprofit organizations providing visitor services at the local, national, or international level.
