TOUR303 Tourist Accommodation Management

A synthesis and examination of factors influencing the operation of accommodation sector organisations and businesses. An application of the knowledge and skills from prior learning in the area of tourism and hospitality human resources management, yield management, and the environmental and managerial conditions specific to the accommodation sector.

The hospitality industry combines the growth of the tourism industry, alongside changing patterns of leisure consumption, in creating one of New Zealand’s fastest growing business areas. Accommodation is a specific sector of this industry and is about much more than a bed for the night. This paper will cover human resources management, yield management, and the environmental and managerial conditions specific to the accommodation sector.
