Course content

This programme offers the opportunity to learn from leading academics and practitioners working in the field of sustainable tourism management.

By stimulating debate and providing a critical evaluation of theory and practice, the course provides an excellent understanding of the role of management in international tourism. You will learn about management decision-making, the significance and complexity of managing human and financial resources, and the critical issues involved in marketing international tourism and travel.

All our programmes are underpinned by an emphasis on the impact of globalisation for the international tourism industry, and a critical evaluation of ethical and social responsibility in business, and tourist behaviour. The course aligns with our vision of tourism as a key driver for economic diversion and growth, environmental regeneration, socio-economic integration and inclusive development. Many organisations, like the UN World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), the World Bank and the EU as well as national ministries and regional development agencies share our vision.

We are an affiliate member of the UNWTO which informs our teaching and your learning. We are also a member of the UNWTO Knowledge Network, which will give you access to the extensive UNWTO e-library.

The course is suitable if you are looking to convert from another subject area and pursue a future career in tourism or if you already have a grounding in tourism or related subject areas such as business, management, events, hospitality or sport.
