A business degree remains a popular choice among students who enroll at college and here at Sacred Heart Junior College.

As tourism-dependent countries such as ours work towards improving their competitiveness as a choice destination, a degree in tourism management positions students to work in critical areas of the tourism sector such as hospitality, hotel management, event planning, and ecotourism. The tourism sector accounts for 28 percent of total employment in Belize (Belize Tourism Board, 2011) and is also the largest foreign exchange earner. Employment opportunities will continue to grow in this sector.
