Business Management and International Tourism Management (with Professional Placement Year)

Course summary

A Combined Honours degree at Chester gives you the opportunity to study two subjects. You will spend a fairly even amount of time studying each subject area, with possible opportunities to declare a major – minor towards the end of your studies. International Tourism Management Explore one of the world’s leading industries. Discover the benefits of sustainable tourism, develop hands-on tourism skills and plan your future in tourism. We bring International Tourism Management to life with inspiring and real experiences, and our course is accredited by the Tourism Management Institute (TMI). We are passionate about sustainable and responsible tourism management and you will learn, in creative ways, how tourism businesses and destinations are managed to be successful, sustainable and competitive. Your transformation from new student to future tourism leader will begin from day one. Chester is one of the UK’s leading historic tourism destinations so it is the ideal place to explore tourism marketing, development and management ideas that can be applied across the globe, especially given the challenges of the past few years. Benefit from our links with industry experts and exciting placement opportunities. You’ll have the chance to shape your career with a work placement in your second year. And if you’d like to broaden your horizons even further, how does a year at Walt Disney World in the sunshine state sound? Just one of our many opportunities for a year’s study abroad, or an industry placement that will enhance your Tourism degree and your employment prospects. The Placement Year is an opportunity to work in industry or practice so that you can put everything learnt so far into practice and gain hands-on experience. Business Management Explore the dynamic world of business. Realise your amazing qualities. Develop real skills. Gain cutting edge knowledge. Your transformation from student to future business professional will begin from day one. Here at Chester you can either undertake the BA Business Management course or choose to study one of four pathways: Business Management (Entrepreneurship), Business Management (Human Resources), Business Management (Marketing) or Business Management (Finance). We will equip you with much more than business knowledge. Your future employers are seeking skills that we develop with you, meaning that you leave us with experiences that should give you an edge at interview and in the workplace. Most of what you study will be anchored to today’s business world, but we will support you to challenge assumptions and make relevant management. By referring to top companies and emerging sectors such as cognitive science, financial innovation and data analytics you will be well placed to focus and develop your career.
