Course summary

Course overview

Located at our Ambleside Campus, in the heart of the Lake District, your learning experience is embedded into one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. Aimed at existing industry professionals seeking to optimise their career potential, our PGDip in Tourism Management is designed in consultation with regional and national businesses operating in a range of sectors across the tourism industry.

COURSE OVERVIEW

The course provides you with the opportunity to enhance and extend your existing knowledge and expertise by focusing on the critical areas of success in the tourism industry. Each module provides you with a ‘toolkit’ for modelling what successful tourism sector provision looks like in this highly diverse industry with multiple stakeholders and widely differing agendas.

ON THIS COURSE YOU WILL...

  • Develop and deepen your knowledge and understanding of the tourism industry.
  • Examine cutting edge thinking and practice across the tourism sector.
  • Utilise advanced subject-specific skills to enable decision-making in complex and unpredictable situations.
  • Synthesise concepts and integrate new knowledge in a real-world context.
  • Enhance your employability, career potential and personal effectiveness.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

On this programme, you will learn the relevant knowledge and understanding of organisations and the external context in which they operate. Develop the management and operational skills necessary to shape the dynamic and organic changes within your sector of the tourism industry. You will have the opportunity to explore a specialist area through a range of optional modules that explore the development, planning and management of specific businesses.

Throughout, you will learn to integrate new knowledge within both an organisational and departmental context. You will explore concepts of sustainability within the context of space and place, particularly the English Lake District. This programme will equip you with the tools you need to become an effective and successful manager and researcher.

On completion of the PG Diploma you may then choose to progress to the full MBA also available at our Ambleside campus on a full or part-time basis.
