In an increasingly connected world, with average levels of disposable income on the increase, Hospitality and Tourism have become vital sectors to national economies. However, these sectors are also intrinsically vulnerable to disruptions to the external environment through events such as pandemics, war, and recessions. This course is designed for those looking to move into senior management positions in the Hospitality and Tourism sectors within an international context. The course will enable graduates to develop strategies in these dynamic sectors, taking account of contemporary issues and emergent crises. The course focuses on key themes of sustainability and ethics, both of which are increasingly important to an informed customer base. The course includes core topics around marketing, branding, and the use of digital platforms, along with human capital management issues and the changing patterns of the available talent pool across national boundaries. The course is assessed by a variety of methods, including written coursework, presentations, and workplace simulations.
