Course overview

Our course introduces the philosophies, principles and practices that underpin a successful management career in tourism and aviation. You have the option of undertaking an internship or producing a research-led dissertation.

The internship route includes a 30-week industry placement with a tourism, aviation or hospitality employer in the UK or overseas. This allows you to add a practical dimension to your studies, focused on the demands of workplace supervision and management.

The dissertation route requires a 15,000-word thesis. Completed over the summer and supported by a dedicated team of research supervisors, this allows you to apply your research skills and contribute to existing debates in tourism and or aviation management.
