About

This Online MBA Tourism at Robert Kennedy College 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.

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.
