Built for travel professionals

It started with a brilliant business psychologist, a well-recognized tourism developer, and a savvy instructional designer sharing their passion for travel. They came together to solve one of the most challenging problems in tourism: making travel, the personal growth and cultural understanding derived from it, available to more people around the world. 

They focused on the expertise and industry they knew best. To unlock the potential for greater reach, impact, efficiency, and sustainability, the tourism industry needed qualified, transformative, engaging, and accessible education.

These were the fundamental ingredients for The Tourism Academy. 

We are on a mission

Our mission is to educate, empower and inspire the tourism industry, making it easier for travel professionals to advance their careers, grow their businesses and provide life-changing travel experiences to more people.

A Culture of Innovation

Innovation occurs when people are allowed to think, dream, take risks, try new things, collaborate, and learn. 

Our in-house team of experienced instructional designers, tourism development leaders, and support personnel create solutions that bridge technology, education, business, and adult psychology to produce tangible results. 

"There is one thing all travelers have in common - we are curious creatures. We take this love for learning everywhere we go.
We are at the intersection of hospitality and education - where people connect, relationships blossom, knowledge is traded, and ideas are given freedom to cross-pollinate."

Stephen Ekstrom, Chief Strategist Tweet
