Which Master Programmes?

 

The School of Hospitality & Tourism Master of Science Programmes

MSc International Event Management

MSc International Hospitality Management

MSc International Tourism Management

Our MSc in International Event Management requires an open, critical and inquiring mindset for the social-scientific and applied study of events and management. You will be expected to critically evaluate existing knowledge in the field of event management, debate key issues such as sustainability, ethical event production and legacy planning, and consider strategic responses to the environmental forces impacting the events industry.

Unique aspects of the course include:

  • A critical analysis of the relationship between government policy and events
  • Triple-level study of events at a macro, meso and micro level, covering global issues, policy and operations respectively
  • An international approach and student body

This is an academic course with a high degree of vocational relevance. Its content and delivery are strongly underpinned by the team's expertise, research activities and - in many cases - first-hand experience. Industry expertise and application is drawn from areas as perse as festivals, business events, marketing, consultancy, sport and leisure, all of which enrich the design and delivery of the course.

This 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 not only address core business and management subjects, but also hospitality as a global phenomenon and how it is consumed by cultures and societies.

The course is ideally suited for graduates wishing to increase their knowledge in a specialist sector, for people in the early stages of their careers looking to develop them further, or for those seeking a change in career direction entirely.

In signing up for the course, you can expect:

  • an international approach and student body
  • a dedicated research lab
  • professional expertise and first-hand experience from all of our academics.

This programme offers an innovative and visionary approach in the study of tourism as both an economic and social phenomenon.

Our view is that tourism has become an integral part of the culture of many regions around the world. This has had a powerful influence on identity, representation and business environments in developed as well as developing nations.

This programme offers an innovative and visionary approach in the study of tourism as both an economic and social phenomenon.

On a global scale, the World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) forecasts an increase in the number of international arrivals in the region of 1.6 billion by the year 2020. As such the industry needs people who understand the significance, complexity and dynamics of this perse and evolving sector.

Our International Tourism Management MSc recognises both the continuing importance and value of the global tourism industry in economic terms and the significance of its social, political and environmental implications.
