Himachal Pradesh University Institute of Vocational Studies - HPUIVS

The Master of Tourism Administration Degree started as an Independent course in Himachal Pradesh University in the year 1992 under the Institute of Vocational Studies, Faculty of Commerce and Management. The programme was initiated keeping in view the growing importance of the Tourism Industry to the country. The flourishing of Tourism in the country created a sudden demand for Tourism Professionals to serve in the Industry. Realizing the dearth of educated Tourism Professionals and the vast avenues of employment opportunities available in this field, it was decide to introduce a post graduate degree in Tourism. Himachal University was one of the earliest Universities in the country and second in the Northern Region to start a Master of Tourism Administration Degree. The Degree included papers on Tourism and Management along with Foreign Language instruction, field trip to some known tourist destination within India and hands-on-work experience in Tourism provided through a 6 month on- the- job training with any tourism related organization. To deliver lectures on Tourism, faculty from the University and Tourism Scholars and professional were invited. The Course Curriculum was revised from time to time as per the requirements of the Tourism Industry. This has helped to include the latest emerging concepts in Tourism and the Travel trade and orient the students in accordance with the contemporary tricks of the trade. The latest syllabus of MTA is now strictly according to UGC NET tourism management curriculum. In the year 1999, after some regular teaching appointments, the MTA course was assigned a separate status as an Independent Department under the Institute of Vocational Studies. This helped in according due importance and attention to the MTA department and further facilitated in better placements of the MTA graduates in the Tourism Industry. Ever since 1999, the MTA Department has been on a steady path of growth and enrichment and has become very popular within and outside the country.
