In addition to management skills, considerable attention is paid to professional skills and theory in order to help you develop the right attitude for the hospitality sector. On the Tourism Management programme, you learn how to successfully lead a business in the international tourism & leisure industry as a manager, entrepreneur or consultant. You learn to translate the wishes of your guests into appealing, innovative tourism and leisure concepts.
To this end, you will learn about the international tourism industry, design and planning of environmentally friendly resorts, ecotourism, motivation of travellers and factors affecting tourist behaviour. You will also gain expertise in managing visitor attractions, the protection and management of heritage and historic sites, tourism in rural areas, and the promotion and marketing of tourism products. This will be achieved by critically evaluating the complex relationships between different sectors of tourism, tourism destination planning organisations and local communities through the use of international case studies. Just two examples of the challenging case studies you might face include developing a theme park in Poland and advising on destination development in Zambia.
