Description of the course
This course will help you develop an advanced understanding of both the Hospitality and Events industries, as well as teaching effective strategies on how to run these operations.
On completion of the programme you will have developed an analytical, strategic insight into these industries. You will also have access to workshops, guest speaker events, field trips and industry-focused practical cases.
The programme consists of two semesters, each of which is designed to provide you with the knowledge and skills to succeed in these highly competitive sectors.
During the first semester, you will be introduced to the theoretical issues affecting modern hospitality and event organisations. The second semester will focus particularly on the application of key theories through practical case studies.
Graduates will be eligible to work on a broad range of supervisory, managerial and consulting positions in both public and private sector tourism or event organisations, often with a marketing and sales orientation.
Event Management graduates can be expected to go on to managerial posts within conference centres, international associations, professional conference organisers, destination management companies, convention bureaux, exhibition organisers etc. Similarly, Tourism Management graduates can go on to positions in destination, hotel, travel or distribution marketing and sales.
Learning and Teaching strategy
The learning and teaching strategy is underpinned by current research as well as the requirements of professional practice and reflects the learning outcomes of the programme. The learning and teaching strategy relates to, and is tested by the assessment requirements. It provides the students with a learning environment that will incorporate a variety of teaching and learning methods such as:
dissemination of information and facilitation of learning via lectures, seminars and internet,
debate and discussion in seminars / plenary sessions/ on-line discussion boards,
analysis and synthesis of case studies to expose students to the complexities and intricacies of business related problems,
directed reading through the use of texts / articles / hand-outs,
individual and / or group presentations
development of a research proposal culminating in the completion of a project.
Emphasis is placed on participative and interactive activities designed to encourage original, creative and reflective thought from each student as well as an emphasis on the students’ responsibility for their learning. This creates the need to divide the study sessions into two main categories to match the learning and teaching strategy.
