Course summary

The tourism and events industry is predicted to be worth £257 billion to the British economy by 2025 (Visit Britain). It’s an industry that will recover quickly post-pandemic. The industry is of vital importance to the local North East Lincolnshire economy, with visitor numbers of five million generating over £200 million to the local economy. It’s a multi-disciplinary industry centred round the seaside town of Cleethorpes. Do you want to be a part of this vibrant expanding industry? If so, our BA (Hons) Tourism and Business Management Degree Top Up at the purpose built University Centre Grimsby could be for you! The aims of the programme are to enable students to enter the dynamic tourism industry, equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge, at management level. The team have looked at the major issues and changes that have impacted upon the tourism industry, especially within the UK but at an international level as well. We have developed close links with the NELC’s tourism and events team, and this is reflected within the development of the programme, along with many tourism-based organisations, both locally and internationally. However, the issues and changes affecting the local resort of Cleethorpes are replicated across the tourism industry, both in the UK and abroad. These links will be utilised through guest lectures and other opportunities locally. Students will gain knowledge and critical understanding of the well-established principles of Business Management within a Tourism and Business context, including the concepts and principles needed in the workplace at management level.


Digital Marketing Management Consultancy Management of the Tourism Environment Event Based Tourism Dissertation

Assessment method

The assessment is a mixture of practical and academic work. There is a dissertation where students are able to engage either in writing a business or tourism-based dissertation on a specific question of their choice. The two business-based modules have more practical aspects to them, with the Management Consultancy module based around a case study, and the digital marketing module have an innovative assessment based around social media. The two tourism modules have more traditional forms of assessment with presentations and reports, but they are linked wherever possible to the actual industry.
