With the recent economic challenges in the travel and hospitality sectors, it’s even more important than ever to create a degree designed to support the sustainability and growth of an industry that supports millions of jobs worldwide.
Our business and tourism management programme will provide you with the knowledge you need to open up opportunities for a future in the tourism industry. Whether that’s employment with local, national or international companies, or you’re a budding entrepreneur looking to create a new niche, never has the saying “the world is your oyster” been more appropriate.
