Integrated Resorts (IRs) consist of mutually supportive amenities along with a gaming component. They have become increasingly popular as a business model globally. In the case of Macau they have played a crucial role in developing the local hospitality and tourism industry. Despite the unprecedented growth of IRs and the gaming-leisure-tourism sector across Asia and internationally, there is no academic institute internationally that offers a university degree in this unique area of study. To sustain the competitiveness of IRs, potential talents must be equipped with advanced knowledge through a variety of educational opportunities. Our department contributes to the sustainable growth of the IR sector by providing education at all levels with a managerial focus.

Welcome to the homepage of the Department of Integrated Resort and Tourism Management (DRTM) at the University of Macau.

We offer a Bachelor of Science in International Integrated Resort Management, a Master of Science in International Integrated Resort Management, and a PhD in Business Administration with specialization in Hospitality and Gaming Management.

We have redesigned our curriculums to better prepare our students to become professionals in the integrated resort and tourism industry. The new name reflects the focus on a tailored and cutting-edge educational experience  for our students, as well as our active research engagement in this area.

As part of the program, many of our students take part in summer training and overseas study trips (e.g., Las Vegas, Houston, Los Angeles, Hawaii and Seoul). Our students are also given the opportunities to undertake internships and participate in exchange programs globally. These were featured in the episode (ep. 31) of TVB (HK) program ‘Academia Without Borders’ (升學無疆界).
