The MBA is the prime management qualification for managers. Designed for your success, the MBA creates distinctive managers with a comprehensive knowledge of the latest business practices. This specialised MBA in Tourism explores the range of concepts of the functions of management within the tourism industry, evaluating how tourism is structured and organised as a business, and how it can be sustainably operated as a destination in the global context. Although there may be some bias towards UK practice in particular with respect to case study discussions, the programme should be considered global in terms of its coverage of tourism.
The MBA programmes benefit greatly from the internationality derived from recruiting students from across the globe and drawing on tutors well qualified in their field.
