Just not going to continue a career in Tourism. I am changing to IT and business is more relevant.

Fair enough but your original course 'international business and tourism management' wouldn't it have business related modules/units anyway right? just that tourism is added as an extra aspect.

Yeah but is structured around the tourism industry. Some of the modules include ethics in tourism, urban regional regeneration, destination development which apply to tourism only.

True. Well you’ve made a valid point in a way. I have a degree in “International tourism business management” and it concerns me that it only focuses on the aspects of tourism businesses only... although skills could be transferable from one career to another. If I had to change one thing I think i would have a done a degree more specifically in business management/international business just like yourself as its an all rounder I guess. On a positive note I think you’ve made a really fair and good decision.

Now it's down to the uni to accept for me to change. Since I am entering 3rd year with an HND in travel and tourism, it might be a bit difficult.
