Hotel Investment and Asset Management

The traditional owner/operator model that has historically dominated the hotel sector has radically transformed in recent years. Meaning that a singular hotel may be owned, leased, managed and branded by separate parties. This split between ownership and operations has resulted in a growing chasm of expertise between the owner and the operator of a hotel. This course will equip students with the skills and knowledge necessary to bridge this gap and address the current and emerging "real world" challenges that face the hotel sector.

Entry requirements

Applicants should normally hold a Bachelors degree (UK 2:1 or above) or equivalent qualification from a British or overseas university. There will be no specific requirement for students to have a first degree in Hospitality. Relevant work experience could be an additional benefit where applicants have not reached the standard entry requirements, although it is not an admissions requirement for this particular degree programme. Higher level professional qualifications may also be accepted. Each applicant is assessed on their own merit. It is recommended that applicants have an existing background in Hospitality, either through their first degree or through work experience.
