New Masters Paths to Success

Study Group's partner universities are offering pre-Masters pathways to Masters degrees in tourism and hospitality.

In response to the increasing demand for leaders in tourism and hospitality across the world, Widener University in Philadelphia, USA and Royal Roads University in Victoria, Canada have developed graduate programs to train future leaders in the Hospitality and Tourism industry.

Each university offers a Pre-Master's Program (PMP) at their International Study Centers for international students that do not meet the English language entry requirement for the master's degree programs. Students on a PMP will leave the course equipped to face the challenges of graduate level coursework in the USA and Canada. Upon successful completion of this advanced university preparation program, students are able to progress to the MA Tourism Management program at Royal Roads University, or the MS Hospitality and Tourism program at Widener University.
