    A PHd. course is pursued by those who are interested in pursuing a career in research or teaching field. So if you are interested in any of these areas you will first have to complete Masters course. Then you will have to register yourself for the PHd. course. By doing an MBA course you will be preparing yourself to enter the corporate world. You can join either Government tourism department or you can join any private firm. You have the option to start your own enterprise. The decision needs to be taken by you. You need to decide based on what kind of a job profile you are looking for. It needs to be decided based on your interest and what kind of work you would like doing.

    The basic qualification required for doing PHD is a Post-Graduate degree in the relevant discipline. The candidates must also have at least 55 percent marks or an equivalent grade from a recognized university or an institution of higher learning. Those who wish to go for academics may go for Mphil and then UGC Net exam to become a research fellow. Once you clear that, you can have stipend while doing PhD. It is always better to do higher studies in related subjects. This will make you an expert in the same field. You can do your masters from a reputed institution and then go for Ph.D in tourism. If you choose to do MBA, then it will help to broaden your career option with additional specialization. You can choose any specialization as there is not much connection with education background and specialization. You can choose either of the courses, but it entirely depends up on your aptitude and preference.

    Doing Phd in tourism and taking MBA are entirely different from one another .

    If you take Phd then you can go for research in the field of tourism or you can go for the teaching in the same field or that you have to do masters also otherwise you are not allowed to go for the Phd in tourism ....And if you take MBA in tourism then you can go for the job in the field of tourism ,tourism offers you a lot of opportunities in the field of tourism .The opportunities in the field of tourism are increasing like anything .....
    you can get job in government companies or in private companies .
    You have to decide what should be done ,whether to go for Phd in tourism or go for MBA ...

    According to me you should go for MBA in tourism so that your chances of placement from college/university will increase.tourism is not a field of science so that you wanna go for phd.why to go for phd in tourism when ultimate target is earning money or run own business in tourism.phd is only for science graduates who are interested in research.you should apply for mba in tourism so that the skills you developed during graduation will be usefull. you will be taught a lot of new concepts to handle the business in tourism industry.colleges for mba in tourism-

    1) Pioneer college of management
    2) Lovely professional university.
    3)Global institute of management and science.
    4) NITHM,Hyderabad.
    5)indian institute of tourism and travel management, Gwalior
    6) academy of business management and tourism research..
