Overview

The tourism industry is the single largest contributor of economic activity in St. Lucia. According to the economic profile, 2018 tourism accounts for 64% of real GDP followed by manufacturing and agriculture.

To sustain the industry and to foster growth, it requires employees who are well trained and equipped with the relevant skills necessary to contribute to the industry. Currently, 47.8% of St. Lucia’s workforce is employed in the tourism industry and SALCC has contributed to the training of many of these hospitality workers through delivery of Associate Degrees in Food and Beverage Operations, Hospitality Studies and Travel and Tourism, and now Culinary Arts.

Recognizing the importance of this industry to our economy the BA is designed to fill a new niche in the industry, by training individuals at Managerial positions within the industry. Our programme is designed to produce individuals who will be innovative leaders in a variety of areas within the industry.
