Course content

The International Hospitality Management MSc offers a taught programme that uses academic knowledge to inform operational hospitality management practice.

Our worldwide industry connections enable our postgraduate students to study the hospitality industry from an entrepreneurial, operational and strategic management perspective. You will not only address core business and management subjects, but also hospitality from a design and concept development point of view. You will also study hospitality as a global phenomenon and how it is consumed by cultures and societies.

On this course, you can expect an international approach and student body. Our facilities include a dedicated research lab where you’ll gain professional expertise.

We are an affiliate member of the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), an educational member of the Institute of Hospitality and members of both the Council for Hospitality Management Education (CHME) and the International Council on Hotel Restaurant and Institutional Education (ICHRIE) all of which informs our teaching and your learning. We are also members of the Institute of Hospitality’s Education Membership Scheme (EMS), which enables our students to access extensive resources and benefits.

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