About the Course

The perfect foundation for senior managerial roles in this dynamic, thriving sector, our renowned International Hospitality Management programme opens up a variety of prestigious career opportunities for you, both in the UK and overseas.

Our aim is that you will leave us as a professional ready to make an immediate impact in the field; to ensure this happens, you will start developing professional skills from the outset of the programme.

This combination of academic theory, up-to-date industry knowledge and practical experience will kick-start your hospitality management career, giving you opportunities across a range of organisations and sectors – from hotels and restaurants to events companies and cruise ships.

Graduates also go on to work for consultancy companies, or use their degree as a gateway into other areas in which hospitality is an essential activity, such as estate management or corporate entertaining. Others have used the business and management elements of the programme to move into broader management roles.

We also ensure that our programme reflects the current state of the hospitality industry, making extensive use of case studies, simulations, site visits and the latest data to provide you with the most up-to-date and relevant education possible.

Our degree is one of the most prestigious qualifications in hospitality management, with our alumni occupying some of the most senior positions in the industry.

Our MBus programme offers highly academic students a direct route to a Masters qualification by extending your BSc for a further year.

Graduates of the programme will be able to combine theory and its application in the commercial world and are therefore likely to be highly attractive to employers as future strategic leaders and senior managers in the hospitality sector.

Career Opportunities

Our graduates have proven to be highly employable across a wide range of industries, not just within hospitality. Their specialist skills make them ideal for service sector companies’ fast-track graduate recruitment schemes.

Customer-oriented skills make them attractive to any service-based industry.

Some graduates choose to go into operational management roles, running hotels and restaurants around the world. Others specialise in marketing, human resources, IT and other head office positions in large hospitality-based corporations. Some set up their own successful hospitality businesses.
