Business Management with Tourism Foundation Degree - University of Hertfordshire

This two-year programme is designed to provide you with a basis for entering a career in Tourism. Additionally, you will develop your understanding of the role of business in society and develop knowledge of the main functional areas; marketing, accounting and human resources. You will study tourism and consumer buyer behaviour together with their implications for segmenting and targeting. Additionally, you will examine factors influencing the nature and spatial distribution of tourism development as well as impacts on the environment. Passenger transportation providers for tourism will also be reviewed. You will also be able to work on a work based learning project, giving you hands-on experience. You don’t need any prior knowledge of business studies or marketing before choosing this subject. You will gain a broad introduction to the subject in your first year and study more specialist subjects in the second year. The benefits of studying a Foundation Degree at one of our partner colleges in Hertfordshire includes intensive tutorial support, easy access to tutors, small class sizes and use of all of the facilities on the University Campus in addition to the first class facilities at the college. You have access to our Learning Resources Centres open 24/7(during term time), Hertfordshire Sports Village, StudyNet – a virtual learning environment providing online course materials - and our Students’ Union, where you can join a club, meet new people and enjoy a taste of university social life.

You gain a nationally recognised higher education qualification with a clear emphasis on practical work-based learning, personal development and employability – and benefit from a route on to a full honours degree, whilst saving money at the same time!
