The Economic Development and Tourism Management concentration provides an in-depth examination of the economics, infrastructure, logistical, security, and research issues involved with regional, national, and international economic development and tourism. Students are exposed to the interplay of private, public, and government organizations as they relate to the design of a comprehensive economic development and tourism plan. The combination of theory and practice prepares students to analyze tourism markets; assess area, regional, and national weaknesses and strengths; and understand infrastructure needs and the costs associated with development.
