Our dissertation module is the flagship of our programme, where you get to demonstrate and apply all the knowledge and skills you have acquired to study a contemporary tourism management issue of your choice. We encourage students to pick a dissertation subject that not only interests them, but is directly related to the kind of employment they are looking to secure following their graduation. Added to that, you can opt for our Work Based Learning module which allows students to work with a tourism business client in a consultancy role.
By the end of the programme you will have the knowledge to understand and critically evaluate theories at the cutting edge of tourism research alongside data analysis skills that will enable you to predict the changing patterns of tourism demand and tourist behaviour. Graduates from the MSc International Tourism Management are well placed to find positions with international tourism corporations and businesses as destination managers and marketers, consultants, hotel and event managers as well as tourism development, planning and impact assessment roles in the private and public sectors.
