Course summary

Course Overview

Are you looking to complement your undergraduate studies with a business-focused master’s degree that will enhance your employability? This two-year course with advanced practice develops broad business skills while also offering a specialist pathway in hospitality and tourism management.

Specialist modules cover topics such as responsible tourism, tour operations, and managing attractions and destinations. You will 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.

During the second year you will undertake an Advanced Practice consultancy project for a whole semester. These can be related to any business and management discipline, given the generic content of this Masters programme .

There is no requirement to have studied business, hospitality or tourism at undergraduate level and we welcome applications from graduates of any discipline.

The course is covered by the prestigious AACSB accreditation for Newcastle Business School, which was ‘Business School of the Year’ at The Times Higher Education Awards 2015.

Career

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.

A further module, ‘Academic and Professional Development’, has a specific focus on self-development. It includes formal sessions with our Careers and Employment Service which offers a range of workshops, one-to-one advice, and networking opportunities.

In the second year of the course you will be putting your new learning into practice. You will develop a track record of achievement that will help you stand out from other job applicants. We will help you find a project that matches your interests and career aspirations.

A master’s course that takes two years, instead of just one, will carry particular weight with employers. They’ll understand that you’ll have a deeper understanding of topics as well as more hands-on practical experience.

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.

If you decide to start up your own business, it’s good to know that the combined turnover of our graduates’ start-up companies is higher than that of any other UK university.

The course could also lead you to a postgraduate research degree such as an MPhil, PhD and Professional Doctorate.
