Dynamic, fast paced and international, the hospitality industry is a thriving business sector offering you plenty of exciting career opportunities. This course is designed to prepare you for a management career in world-class hotels, country clubs, theme parks, leisure centres, exhibition venues or catering services. The course is designed around what the hospitality industry wants, ensuring that you are in the best possible position to go directly into challenging and rewarding positions within multinational organisations nationally or globally. We offer field trips and a placement year to give you the chance to work in hospitality during your studies. You’ll be taught by lecturers who have experience in the industry, who’ll help you explore areas of finance, marketing, human resources and operations management alongside hospitality specific options such as venue selection, contracts, health and safety, licensing, public safety and security alongside principles of strategic management and how it is applied to industry practice. You could also study how to minimise risks, how to get sponsorship and how to fund events. And we’ll look at the technology that companies use in staging and marketing events too. During your studies we’ll give you the opportunity to take a placement with a business, either in the UK or abroad. Previous students have undertaken placements in companies like Marriott, Fairmont Hotels and Resorts, Hilton, White Lodgings, De Vere and Park Plaza as well as Greenwich Country Club in Connecticut, Broken Sound Club in Florida and Ovolo in Hong Kong.
