Course content

Studied on campus or 100% online, this MBA is designed to develop your skills and provide a critical understanding of different approaches to sustainable tourism management. You will have the opportunity to develop knowledge and skills in traditional and contemporary tourism planning approaches, such as Environmental Impact Assessment, monitoring and forecasting demand, and increasing tourist satisfaction. The course will embrace contemporary debates and challenges, and facilitate implementation in destinations and industry. Tourism continues to expand, experiencing consistent year-on-year growth.

This pathway includes two sustainable tourism specialist modules and your project will also be in this field. There will be no reference to sustainable tourism on your degree certificate, however your transcript will show all the modules you took and the grades you received.

Note: This course is part of the MBA Master of Business Administration

The course consists of three distinct but interconnected stages:

Certificate - The modern enterprise and business environment – how does it work?

The Certificate phase will develop a resource based view of the business enterprise and examine how value is created, including the impact of the wider business environment on the enterprise’s value creation activities.

Diploma - Preparing for tomorrow – what needs to change?

In the Diploma stage the focus shifts to considering the manager’s role in the development of an enterprise in response to the internal and external context, to create sustainable value.

Masters – Management in action – bringing about change

The Masters phase of the programme will focus more specifically on particular sectors and /or roles (including general management and leadership) depending on your chosen pathway. The emphasis will be on exploring, critically evaluating and applying a range of sector/ role specific models and concepts within a practice setting/ context.
