Effective tourism management is essential for the future of destinations, communities and the travel and tourism industry. The term ‘over-tourism’ and its associated global impacts has highlighted a real and urgent need for managers who are capable of developing the tourism industry in a sustainable way.

This course will give you a substantial theoretical and practical understanding of the role and contribution of the tourism industry in the context of international development. You will gain the skills required to manage sustainable tourism businesses, a strategic insight into the future of tourism development alongside the specialisms of strategic destination management, managing tourism post-conflict and crisis and the strategic use of events for urban destination management.

The International Tourism Development course places particular emphasis upon the contribution of social enterprise projects in supporting development and sustainability, in line with the University’s Changemaker ethos.

The course includes a funded overseas study trip to enhance practical knowledge and employability. Read more about our recent trip to Finland.

This course has an Industry Placement Option.
