This course has been designed to provide a high quality management education for practising managers and those with an appropriate undergraduate education who wish to aspire to a career in the dynamic area of international hospitality and event management. Current hospitality trends and analysis are used to illustrate the competitive environment within which changing event provision and expansion can be successfully delivered. Therefore the emphasis throughout the programme is on the development of a wide range of professional and managerial skills linked to key themes within the area of hospitality and event management. The modules have been selected to ensure a blend of theoretical and practical issues within both a managerial and a subject specific context. Furthermore, the application of key management skills throughout the hospitality sector is considered from both an organisational and an individual perspective of personal growth and development. As such, today’s industry continues to evolve in response to the changing market forces that serve to continually differentiate creativity and innovation within managing the optimum customer experience. The growing size and dominance of hospitality as the major employer around the world means that companies and organisations are continually seeking individuals with the knowledge and capabilities of managing various aspects of this dynamic and expanding industry.
The programme is a 12 month programme comprising three parts. The first two parts are the taught element and the final part is consists of research and writing the dissertation element. The taught element focuses on key aspects of hospitality and event management.

Part-time students will normally attend on a one day a week basis and complete the taught element in two years. Students who complete the taught element of the programme, in part or in its entirety, may graduate with either a Postgraduate Certificate or Diploma in International Hospitality and Event Management. Students wishing to complete the Master of Science in International Hospitality and Event Management must complete the research element.
The research element comprises a dissertation. Full-time students will normally complete this in the three months that follow the taught element, whilst Part-time students complete this during the course of an academic session.
Students require a good honours degree (or equivalent) in a subject related to hospitality, tourism, business or service sector management.
