James Whyte Visiting Research Fellowship

The W. James Whyte Visiting Research Fellowship has helped turn UQ Business School into an international powerhouse for tourism research.

Through the Fellowship, tourism researchers have formed or cemented professional relationships with their counterparts across the globe, from London and Bangkok to Sweden, Germany and the USA.

These academics, scholars and researchers have been able to work together to achieve outcomes as diverse and significant as books, book chapters, journal articles, conference papers, plus significant grants.
