Hospitality Management

The MA Hospitality Management programme is aimed at aspiring professionals who have successfully completed an industry related degree - and are seeking to augment levels of reflection and analysis relating to many issues which are currently facing the sector. Studying Hospitality Management at UWTSD will provide you with the necessary knowledge and insights necessary to develop a deeper understanding of managing hospitality organisations more effectively. Specialist modules within the fields of hospitality management and sustainable hospitality operations will build upon more generic coverage of management and marketing knowledge. Examination of factors which influence the development of organisations, particularly within the fields of marketing and management, will be covered, together with environmental influences which impact upon business performance. Theory will be applied from all subjects to the solution of complex problems within the sector, which will provide students with a critical awareness of current issues and challenges. The use of field trips, guest speakers and workshop seminars will support mainstream lecture delivery. An emphasis upon the use of case studies and industry "good practice" will be central within all modules.
