Linda Ambrosie is a visiting assistant professor of Management and Tourism Studies at the GW School of Business. She has a Ph.D. in Management with a major in Accounting and Tourism, and holds a Masters of International Business from the University of Paris IX Dauphine, France. Between her masters and Ph.D., she worked for the United Nations International Labour Office (ILO) as Chief Technical Advisor in Burkina-Faso and Brazzaville-Congo, Africa. From Africa, she moved to Mexico, where for most of two decades she started owned and operated a tour company and a boutique hotel.

Dr. Ambrosie's research interests include tourism taxation — especially avoidance and evasion — public sector governance at tourism destinations, and tourism policy. In addition to academic articles addressing these issues, in 2015 she published a book on tourism, tax evasion, and public sector governance entitled "Sun & Sea Tourism: Fantasy and Finance of the All-Inclusive Industry" that highlights the complex financial structures designed to withhold revenues from the very destinations where global tourism enterprises create value and where these revenues are needed to promote development and sustainability.
