Course content

This course is a conversion course, it is ideal for graduates who would like to change subjects or career direction.

This Master's degree is intended to provide you with an advanced understanding of the hotel & food services industries and a managerial perspective of how to run such organisations. It is anticipated that after completing this course, you'll have the capacity to be involved in more analytical, developmental and strategic perspectives of the industries and will develop insights into the issues affecting these industries than at undergraduate level.

The emphasis of this course is on accommodation management, food & drink, and the food service sector. As such, this is a course with an operational management focus, although it will also provide you with the opportunity to identify and engage with selected areas of specialism within these industries such as revenue management, IT applications, and human resource management.

You will also have access to a wide range of extra curricula activities and qualifications, such as our visiting speakers programme including representatives from Hilton International, Shangri-la Hotels, Fairmont Hotels, Le Manior aux Quat Saisons and many more. You will have the opportunity to attend our annual hospitality student conference and to undertake added value courses such as the Wine and Spirits Trust Award, trips to the World Travel and Tourism Market, London and to participate in the HOTS Hotel Simulation package.
