This 2 year course is specifically designed for people wishing to work at an operational or strategic level in the travel and tourism sector, or for people already in work who wish to enhance their operational experience with the theory underpinning strategic decision making. This course gives you a thorough understanding of the structure, nature and operating characteristics of the international tourism industry, using a combination of academic learning and practical, industry-focused study. Taught by academics with industry backgrounds and engaged in research within the sector, students study a course with an international focus. Our strong links with major tourism employers enable us to offer you unique opportunities.

The course will give you the opportunity to enhance your skills and knowledge of the sector, and to put theory into practice within a real business environment. Studying as part of an international cohort of students you will be able to choose a range of optional modules to allow you to tailor the course to suit your specialist interests or enhance your knowledge of sectors you are familiar with.
