According to the World Tourism Organization and the World Travel and Tourism Council, the travel and tourism industry is the largest industry and employer in the world. It is the third-largest industry in the United States and ranks as the second-largest industry in Arizona.
The minor program in tourism development and management provides students with the planning and development skills needed to enter the largest industry in the world. Exposure to the businesses of sustainable tourism, heritage tourism and meeting and convention planning prepares students for successful careers in the fast-growing travel and tourism industry.
The minor allows students enrolled in other undergraduate programs at ASU to broaden their educational experiences. Students from such various disciplines as business, communication and many others find this program a beneficial supplement to their existing program. Having completed the minor program in tourism development and management, a student also may complete a certificate in convention sales and meeting planning: https://scrd.asu.edu/programs/certificate/convention-sales-and-meeting-planning.

Current ASU undergraduate students may pursue a minor and have it recognized on their ASU transcript at graduation. Students interested in pursuing a minor should consult their academic advisor to declare the minor and to ensure that an appropriate set of courses is taken. Minor requirements appear on the degree audit once the minor is added. Certain major and minor combinations may be deemed inappropriate by the college or department of either the major program or the minor. Courses taken for the minor may not count toward both the major and the minor. Students should contact their academic advisor for more information.
