The tourism industry remains an essential and important part of the global economy. This degree will help enable our students to gain the practical knowledge, understanding and transferable skills that are essential in both well-established business organisations, and in the rapidly changing world of international business and the global tourism industry.
You'll develop the necessary skills to identify strategies available to firms operating at an international level, and develop an understanding of the activities and operations of multinational enterprises. In addition to this, you will also study the tourism industry and have the opportunity to deepen your knowledge about the tourism business.
You'll study a wide range of topics in international business and tourism industry, from both a theoretical and practical perspective. Modules include International Tourism, Niché Tourism, International Economics and International Business Strategy.
Our innovative teaching methods include extensive case work, in addition to seminars, tutorials and lectures. We encourage students to be highly independent learners. Modules can be based on individual work or group work, and all teaching and assessment is grounded in real life situations or live projects. We incorporate guest speakers and the development of your professional management skills is also a priority.
The emphasis throughout the course will be upon the preparation for careers in business and tourism industry. An increasingly competitive employment market requires graduates with a flexible orientation and this degree will encourage such an approach.
