Hi pooja,

Being a very wide field, the scope of employment in tourism sector is very bright. Career opportunities exist both in the public and private sector.Opportunities lies in this field is in the travel agencies, Airlines and governmental organizations dealing with Tourism like Immigration department , Directorates & tourism departments, Customs department,Hotels etc.After gaining relevant knowledge and expertise as a Travel professional, you can also choose to get self employed.



MBA tourism management will be an added advantage. But with the current qualification you can start with a decent paid job and than along with it pursue MBA.

All the best

Hello Pooja

With increasing travel and tourism opportunities, the scope of hospitality sector will be great.

You are thinking about MBA because you are from science stream. However it will be difficult for you to choose MBA specialization if you don’t work for a couple of years. It might increase your confusion after first year.

The best option is to take exit and start working in the industry so that you will be able to know which sub-sector and profile you are comfortable with as there are many options like ground staff, kitchen staff, ticket management etc. After that you can decide whether to continue working or switch the profile or pursue any course related to the industry.

 All the best
