Post-Baccalaureate Diploma in Tourism Resort Experience Management
Earn a Post-Baccalaureate Diploma in Tourism Resort Experience Management at Thompson Rivers University
A post-baccalaureate diploma (”post bac” or PBD) is designed for those who already have an undergraduate degree. It is not a master’s degree, but it is more advanced than a traditional diploma. Essentially, a PBD is an alternative to a second degree. One advantage of a PBD is that it takes less time to complete than a second degree.
The PBDs in Tourism are intended for those who are seeking to complement their undergraduate studies with an additional specialization, for career advancement, for a career change, for professional development or in the pursuit of life-long learning.

Before coming to TRU, I couldn’t even imagine how fast my life would change here. TRU gave
me all the opportunities I was looking for to unearth my true potential. I’ve met people from
various parts of the world, gained real-world work experience and most importantly, I have
learned more about myself. Being a part of the TRU community has been one of the most
meaningful and rewarding experiences in my life. One of the best things I did in my program
was my co-op. I put my learning into direct practice right away and that helped me secure a full
time position after I graduated.
