International Hospitality Management MSc (PGCert PGDip)


Course Description

Course in brief

This course focuses on management development in the global hospitality industry - not only addressing 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, people in the early stages of their careers looking to develop them further, or for people seeking a change in career direction.

The university is one of the founding corporate members of the Institute of Customer Service, and currently remains the only university with membership. We are therefore able to access a very high-profile industry network, including many blue chip organisations.

Course structure

Full-time students attend workshops on two days per week with the part-time route usually requiring one day per week. Teaching methods include group work, case studies, presentations, and live projects. The course is delivered through a variety of approaches including lectures, presentations, tutorials and case studies, with an emphasis on interactive learning.

Areas of study

Management subjects address key issues of strategy, marketing, operations, human resources and financial planning, studied in parallel with international hospitality development. Options include consultancy and multi-unit management. Students acquire research skills, which they can apply to academic or industrial projects.
