Course content


The course will develop the strategic skills you need for a management or leadership career in hospitality and tourism, enabling you to successfully develop and run a wide range of business operations.

The tourism and hospitality industries continue to grow significantly, which means that highly skilled, agile, problem-solving leaders are always in demand. This master’s degree course in international tourism and hospitality management offers in-depth understanding of the opportunities and challenges in these sectors, and provides the strategic skills you’ll need to begin an exciting leadership career.

You may have just completed your undergraduate studies (which need not be related to hospitality or tourism) and may be looking for a move into tourism and hospitality. Perhaps you’ve already been working for a while, and now’s the time to change or accelerate your career. This programme welcomes all highly motivated students regardless of prior study or career experience.


We have excellent links with top employers, including the world-renowned The Ritz London (where students have enjoyed work-experience opportunities), and you’ll have many opportunities for exposure to the workplace and employers in the UK and overseas.

You’ll graduate with a sound understanding of the hospitality and tourism industries, including how to run an operation successfully and profitably. Your learning will be not only highly practical, but also rooted in the global context – preparing you to be career-ready for working, or doing business with, organisations anywhere in the world. There is the opportunity for an overseas field trip, and you could arrange to do an internship or real client consultancy project in another country.

You’ll also develop a range of skills which will transfer across to any other industry, including principles of management, and softer skills such as communication and teamwork.


Modules include:

  • Sustainable Strategy
  • Managerial Finance
  • Global HRM Strategies
  • Project Management
  • Operations Management in Travel and Tourism
  • International Hospitality and Tourism Marketing
  • Customer Experience Management
  • Events and Destination Management
  • Business and Management Research Methods
  • Academic and Professional Skill
  • Employability and Enterprise Skills


Throughout the programme, you will work with expert teachers and industry professionals to develop the relevant skills to research and understand the industry, develop the skills and knowledge employers are really looking for, as well as get tailored support on how to start your career even before you graduate.

You will be assigned a personal tutor who will be able to review and discuss your progress and offer advice throughout your studies. You will also have access to a wide range of additional support from our free Spotlight workshops designed to support the development of your study and research skills as well as enhance English language skills if English is not your first language.
