The programme offered by University of Limerick aims to prepare graduates from a variety of academic backgrounds for rewarding careers (both nationally and internationally) in tourism and related sectors. The recent global economic downturn has made "upskilling" more important than ever and consequently has added to the attraction of achieving a specialist post-graduate qualification.
Why should you consider the MA in International Tourism?
For the fifth year running, the programme is ranked in Eduniversal’s top 100 ’Best Masters’ world-wide (Tourism and Hospitality Management studies). This is a global ranking across 30 disciplines in 154 countries.
Tourism remains one of the world’s fastest growing industries and an important source of income generation and employment in many countries. This MA programme is designed to prepare graduates for careers in tourism management, tourism development, and tourism planning and policy analysis. Ongoing economic and political developments require tourism personnel with an understanding of current trends and developments in the global tourism industry, and who are equipped with the analytical and personal skills to effect change.
A vital and innovative component of the Programme comes through field trips whereby students visit and examine the workings of tourism businesses. An exciting aspect has been the International Field Trip where all students of the programme are expected to participate. Students have visited Cuba in recent years; other destinations are expected to be included in future years.
