Our School of Hospitality and Tourism Management offers a fresh, dynamic outlook, unsurpassed industry connections, a leading international reputation and a remarkable track record in graduate employment.

Our innovative MSc in Hotel Investment and Asset Management is the only programme of its type in the UK, and addresses the needs of the contemporary hospitality sector.

Students of this Masters will experience the industry from a new perspective, which in turn will allow them to have a more professional dialogue with their future employers.

PROGRAMME OVERVIEW

The traditional owner/operator model that has historically dominated the hotel sector has radically transformed in recent years. Meaning that a singular hotel may be owned, leased, managed and branded by separate parties.

This split between ownership and operations has resulted in a growing chasm of expertise between the owner and the operator of a hotel.

Our MSc in Hotel Investment and Asset Management will equip students with the skills and knowledge necessary to bridge this gap and address the current and emerging “real world” challenges that face the hotel sector.
