Educational aims of the programme

The programme aims to provide a high quality, vocational education which is intellectually rigorous and up-to- date, as well as relevant to the needs of existing and future managers, executives and other professionals in specific subject areas.

In addition to subject-specific knowledge, the programmes aim to develop generic management skills necessary to be effective in today's challenging business environment.

The programme has a business management orientation related to the service sector and draws upon a range of cognate areas of study to explain and analyse the particular sector.

For each sector it takes an integrated approach so as to provide a coherent exploration of the inter-relationships between the various components. In addition, by way of elective modules, students on some programmes can specialise in particular aspects relevant to their backgrounds, interests and aspirations.

Where appropriate, programmes are international in scope and coverage, and lecturers draw upon the most recent research to inform their teaching. The programmes aim to develop students as independent and reflective learners, able to continue their learning once in their chosen professions.
