This course is designed for people who wish to work in the global tourism and hospitality sectors. The programme focuses on developing a key appreciation of the different sub-sector we refer to as tourism and hospitality and gives students the opportunity to visit many of York’s cultural and heritage sites as a context for understanding similar issues around the world. Opportunities also exist via field trips to visit UK and international venues associated with tourism and hospitality. In year one you will learn about how business operates and how tourism and hospitality fit within that. In years two and three your specialist knowledge will develop and you will understand how tourism and hospitality are important in global economic development and how increasingly sustainability is a key feature. On completion of the course you should be ready to take up a management role within the tourism and hospitality sectors, however you will have developed the skills and to go into alternative management careers.
