The University of Texas at Tyler’s College of Business and Technology is offering a course in tourism marketing to Alberta, Canada this August.

The three-credit course includes business tours of Canada Olympic Park, Bernard Callebaut Chocolate Factory, Alley Kat Microbrewery, Syncrude Plant in the Alberta Tar Sands. Other activities include whitewater rafting on the Kananaskis River, a trip to the summit of Sulphur Mountain on a cable car, hike through Johnston Canyon, the Royal Tyrell museum (the largest collection of fully reconstructed dinosaurs in the world), the Fringe Festival (second largest street performer/busker festival in the world) and West Edmonton Mall (the world’s largest entertainment and shopping complex). 

Cost for the trip is $1,950. Because of the short time frame, deposits will not be collected, but rather the full amount is due Wednesday, June 27. Participants will depart Saturday, Aug. 11 and return Sunday, Aug. 19.

The course does not affect either summer or fall course schedules and is available as a business or general elective to both graduate and undergraduate students. Further, students may also take the course as a marketing or management elective.

Payment may be made by check, cash or credit card at the UT Tyler Cashier’s Office. For more information, contact UT Tyler assistant professor of marketing Dr. Kevin Shanahan, kshanahan@uttyler.edu.
