The Centre for Gaming and Tourism Studies of Macao Polytechnic University offers Bachelor and Master degrees in Gaming and Recreation Management, carries out academic research in gaming, tourism and recreation, and provides casino management courses, with the mission of nurturing high-quality gaming management professionals and contributing to the development of Macao.

    The breakup of monopoly in Macao gaming industry in the beginning of this century heralded the expansion of the career market in Macao. The Macao Tourism and Casino Career Centre was established in 2003 to provide a wide variety of gaming-related training courses for Macao citizens. After some structural changes, the Gaming Teaching and Research Centre was set up officially on September 1, 2009 to serve three major roles: gaming research, gaming teaching and gaming related vocational training. On August 7, 2019, the Centre was renamed as Centre for Gaming and Tourism Studies (CJT) in accordance with the Administrative Regulation No.28/2019.


    The Centre launched the Bachelor’s degree programme in 2010/2011, which was originally named as the Bachelor of Social Science in Gaming and Recreation Management. The programme was renamed as the Bachelor of Business Administration in Gaming and Recreation Management in 2016/2017. It has been accredited by the Hong Kong Council for Accreditation of Academic and Vocational Qualification (HKCAAVQ). A new programme, the Master of Business administration in Gaming Management, starts to run in 2019/2020.

    The Centre strives to provide advisory services to the Macao S.A.R. Government and local community, as well as to promote academic research in the field of gaming, tourism and recreation studies. The Centre comprises four joint academic units, namely the MPU-Sun Yat-sen University Centre for Gaming Studies, the MPU-Sun Yat-sen University Postdoctoral Centre for Innovation and Application, the MPU-BMM Testing Centre for Gaming Devices, and the MPU-SUZOHAPP ASIA Gaming Technology Laboratory, to better strengthen research and teaching excellence at the Centre and advance scholarly communication in the field.
