Course summary

Overview

Are you looking to complement your undergraduate studies with a business-focused Masters degree that will enhance your employability? This course develops broad business skills while also offering a specialist pathway in hospitality and tourism management that starts after the first semester.

This option offers the opportunity to spend three months gaining all-important work experience and employability skills in a professional work setting. You may be able to extend this over more than one semester in cases where it is adjacent to a vacation period. Support is provided to help source opportunities and to perfect the applicant CV but ultimately the onus is on the student to secure the internship position.

What will I study?

Specialist modules will cover topics such as responsible tourism, tour operations, and managing attractions and destinations. You’ll also explore the issues facing international hospitality organisations. Your studies will equip you for roles in the hospitality and tourism industries, which need well-qualified professionals, as well as in general management.

This programme is also available as MSc Business with Hospitality and Tourism Management which lasts for 1 year.

The course includes two modules that are focused on developing global management competencies. Topics during these modules include emotional intelligence, cultural awareness and the ability to work in diverse groups and teams, as well as project management and decision making.

The course culminates in either a Masters dissertation or, if you prefer, a consultancy project where you’ll tackle an issue faced by a real client. Throughout the course there’s a focus on self-development and employability.

Advanced Practice stage

The Advanced Practice version of this course offers you a valuable opportunity to secure a work placement or complete a group consultancy project, giving you experience of the workplace environment or live business issues, and an excellent way to put your learning into practice. This stage of the programme will take place between your second and final semester, and is a semester long (15 weeks) in duration. Internships as part of the Advanced Practice stage may be paid or unpaid. The alternative consultancy module allows you to work in teams with a business organisation working on consultancy-based projects on real business scenarios. Whether you choose the internship or consultancy project you will successfully develop your business skills and further enhance your employability.

Careers and further study

Our graduates typically go into professional and graduate management positions and, by the end of the course, you’ll be well-equipped to follow them. Thanks to the specialist modules – Contemporary Hospitality Management, Tourists and Tourism, and the dissertation/consultancy project – you’ll have a particular edge in roles related to hospitality and tourism.
