Tourism management

The course is the ideal springboard if you’re looking for a successful management career in one of the world’s fastest-growing industries.
Hospitality and tourism offer exciting career opportunities because, despite the broader economic outlook, these industries continue to thrive around the world – and employers are always looking for accomplished graduates. Our exciting, fast-paced and highly practical course will prepare you for a wide range of management and leadership positions, all with a global perspective and within a multi-cultural environment.

You’ll engage regularly with top employers and there are multiple opportunities to explore the industries in action. And where better to study than our London campus, surrounded by some of the world’s most iconic hotels and attractions, which are visited by over 32 million tourists a year?

This course is focused on career-building, so there’s a strong blend of practical content alongside your academic theory. We will connect you with industry and employers, bring the world of work into the classroom, and provide opportunities which will enrich your CV.

Your tutors on this course have close relationships with professional bodies, including the Chartered Management Institute and the major trade associations within hospitality and tourism. This means we’re always up to date with what employers are looking for in graduates.

You’ll enjoy many opportunities to mix with employers, such as The Ritz London and City Cruises. Guest speakers, such as travel or wine companies, will explain how their operations work, and you’ll hear career advice sessions led by employers. There are opportunities to get out and about within London, with visits to major employers, your own independent research, and trips to world-famous hotels. There are also opportunities to work on real-life projects for employers and to work or study overseas. And thanks to our lecturers’ personal connections worldwide, you might find yourself engaged in a live online debate with employers or students in other countries.

**Year One**

The first year of your course will lay the foundations for business in general, including global perspectives, but will also focus in on the specifics of the tourism and hospitality industries. You’ll learn how organisations are structured, how business economics work, and how hospitality and tourism operations function in particular. You’ll also explore the diverse skill-sets needed to run a successful and profitable business.

**Year Two**

This year, you’ll examine what management means in the context of tourism and hospitality. Both are busy, fast-paced sectors which demand skilful leaders who can think on their feet; make well-informed decisions; get the best from diverse teams; understand and serve their customers impeccably; and do all of this within tight budgets. You’ll explore the legal frameworks within which you’ll operate, and learn how to deliver a successful project.

**Optional Placement Year**

Tourism and hospitality are fast-moving sectors demanding very hands-on expertise, and they could take you anywhere in the world. So this course offers the option to add in a year for work experience (whether in the UK or overseas) or to study at a university in Europe or beyond. Either choice is likely to have a hugely positive impact on your personal and professional development, and will add to your CV in a way which will be highly attractive to employers.

**Final Year**

Your final year focuses on more strategic and professional skill-sets, including learning to consult to clients and the importance of sustainability. As with the rest of this course, you’ll root all of your learning in the global context. You’ll also undertake a major piece of work, with the freedom to choose between a work placement, business research, or a global business simulation. To help you approach that project, you’ll also deepen your personal research skills.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

This course sits in a wide group of smaller subjects that don't necessarily have that much in common - so bear this in mind when you look at any employment data. Most graduates took a hospitality, events management or tourism-related course, but there are a group of sports and leisure graduates in here as well who do different things. Events management was the most common job for graduates from this group of subjects, and so it’s no surprise that graduates from specialist events management courses did better last year than many of the other graduates under this subject umbrella - but all did about as well as graduates on average or a little better. If you want to find out more about specific job paths for your chosen subject area, it's a good idea to go on open days and talk to tutors about what previous graduates went on to do, or to have a look at university department websites.

What about your long term prospects?

Looking further ahead, below is a rough guide for what graduates went on to earn.
