Key Modules

Hospitality and tourism have outperformed the global economy for 6 consecutive years, offering excellent career prospects for graduates.

Worldwide tourism grew by 6% in early 2017. In 2016, tourism alone provided employment for 109 million people, contributing $2.3 trillion to the world economy. In 2017, the hospitality industry was the UK’s 4th biggest employer. Despite economic and political challenges across the world, people are travelling more than ever, for both business and leisure purposes – which means more opportunities in management and leadership, too.

You’ll graduate with a sound understanding of the hospitality and tourism industries, including how to run an operation successfully and profitably. You’ll also have a wide set of skills which will transfer across to any other sector, including principles of management and softer skills such as communication and teamwork. You might even start your own business.

Module & Subject

 

Year1

The first year of your course will lay the foundations for business in general, including global perspectives, but will also focus in on the specifics of the tourism and hospitality industries. You’ll learn how organisations are structured, how business economics work, and how hospitality and tourism operations function in particular. You’ll also explore the diverse skillsets needed to run a successful and profitable business.

Year2

This year, you’ll examine what management means in the context of tourism and hospitality. Both are busy, fast-paced sectors which demand skilful leaders who can think on their feet; make well-informed decisions; get the best from diverse teams; understand and serve their customers impeccably; and do all of this within tight budgets. You’ll explore the legal frameworks within which you’ll operate, and learn how to deliver a successful project.

Year3

Your final year focuses on more strategic and professional skillsets, including learning to consult to clients and the importance of sustainability. As with the rest of this course, you’ll root all of your learning in the global context. You’ll also undertake a major piece of work, with the freedom to choose between a work placement, business research, or a global business simulation. To help you approach that project, you’ll also deepen your personal research skills.
