International Hospitality and Tourism Management (completion award) BA (Hons)
COURSE INFORMATION (2013 ENTRY)
1 year full-timeBusiness and Law
Law and NBS Building, City Campus East
This one-year degree completion programme has been established in response to demand from existing and potential BTEC HND and Foundation Degree (or equivalent) holders.
Specifically aimed at preparing students for managerial posts in the hospitality and tourism industries, its core compulsory modules provide a clear understanding of the management challenges facing managers in this sector. The programme also includes option choices, plus a dissertation, enabling students to focus on their own particular area of interest.
LEARNING AND TEACHING METHODS
A variety of teaching and assessment methods are used throughout the programme including lectures, seminars and group exercises. The aim is to help students become effective independent learners equipped with practical skills and competencies. Each module is assessed separately through a combination of coursework, examinations and a project. The project will be completed under the guidance of a project tutor.
The programme is designed for those graduates seeking management posts in the International Hospitality Sector in particular or more widely within the Tourism Industry generally. Given the business studies orientation of the degree, however, graduates are also able to seek broader recruitment opportunities with non-hospitality and tourism industry employers. Many successful graduates from this programme go on to study the Masters in International Travel and Hospitality Management.
