Sustainable, resilient and reflexive thinking skills are at the heart of this tourism management programme. The course is designed to allow you to develop an awareness of modern tourism business practice through practical activities which aim to equip you with a holistic understanding of how tourism businesses and destinations function.
A practical and practice-based programme, this course will equip you with the agile, reflexive and critical thinking skills which are vital for success in tourism organisations. The course is based around four core pillars of being digital, sustainable, innovative and responsible tourism professionals. You will explore the functional areas of tourism through these themes, giving an immersive experience which will result in a thorough understanding of the challenges and opportunities faced by tourism organisations and destinations in the 21st century.
