Course summary

As one of the world’s largest economic sectors, Tourism creates jobs, drives exports, and generates prosperity across the world. The sector accounts for 10.4% of global GDP, and one in every ten jobs is supported by the sector. There's never been a better time to start your management career in Tourism.Our BA (Hons) Tourism and Destination Management degree will equip you with the practical skills, experience, knowledge and critical awareness that will prepare you for senior management roles in this dynamic and fast-growing sector.York is a perfect location to study tourism; the city is one of the most popular heritage and cultural destinations in the UK and welcomes around 7 million tourists a year from around the world. This provides our students with a wide range of tourism and hospitality businesses and opportunities to learn from in the local area. As well as being able to learn from local businesses, our students have the chance to work with local and regional tourism providers, attractions, destination management and marketing organisations.One of the highlights of the Tourism programme at York Business School is an international field trip in the second year. Most recently, staff and students flew to New York City for a week to explore the destination. We also offer the opportunity to study abroad at one of our partnership universities. Students can take a semester or full year abroad at one of our partner institutions in Australia, the USA or across Europe.Our Tourism programmes are recognised by the Tourism Management Institute (TMI). The TMI is the professional body for destination management practitioners, with members drawn from all levels of the private and public sectors. Assessment and recognition by TMI mean that students can be confident the course will provide them with knowledge, understanding, skills and experience to fully prepare them for a career in tourism destination management.
