University of Brighton
International Tourism Management
The programme offers an innovative and visionary approach in the study of tourism as both economic and social phenomena; the view is that tourism has become an integral part of history, culture and economies for many regions of the world; this has had a powerful influence on identity, representation and business environments in developed as well as less developing nations; on a global scale the World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) forecasts an increase in the number of international arrivals in the region of 1.6 billion by the year 2020; as such the industry needs people who understand the significance, complexity and dynamics of a diverse evolving, developing and growing sector; the course recognises both the continuing importance and value of the global tourism industry in economic terms and the significance of its social, political and environmental implications.
Honours degree with a minimum 2.2 equivalent from a NARIC-recognised institution, or an HND equivalent plus at least 5 years of relevant industry experience; students with non-relevant qualifications may be asked to complete a short portfolio prior to commencing the course; other applicants with extensive industry experience are considered on an individual basis.
