Module Descriptions

Specialisation Modules

This module aims to evaluate the significance of the experience economy for a range of sectors in the tourism industry;
Analyse methods of designing tourism experiences in hospitality, resorts, urban destinations and events;
Explain techniques for managing quality tourism experiences;
Support students to produce innovative tourism experience designs.

Core Modules

This module will introduce to students strategic management in both a conceptual and practical way involving critical discussion and use of a range of strategic planning, evaluation and implementation models, thus putting strategy in relation to the functional areas of marketing, operations, finance and human resources. The ultimate aim of the course is to develop students as future managers who will add value by ‘strategically managing’ the organisation’s resources and capabilities.

This module introduces students to traditional and modern concepts of leadership, and focuses on skill and knowledge development and organisational operations, effectiveness and competition. The module will help students to understand the differences between management and leadership, and why some managers fail to lead and motivate employees. It will also focus on the link between leadership and competition in a global context.

This module arises from the recognition that graduating students need to be equipped with vocational and personal skills to heighten their potential employability. Employability relates to the capability of individuals to gain suitable employment and to the capacity of individuals to be productive contributors in the workplace. Employability thus results in the personal and economic well-being of the individual.

This module will enhance a student’s understanding of contemporary issues that affect the running of organisations and the individuals who work within them. Students are provided with a range of conceptual frameworks and tools to enable them to ‘see’ what is going on within organisations more clearly and to understand the complexity of organisations and of organisational life.

This research project is a key element of the degree. It is the point where knowledge and understanding acquired through the earlier taught courses is synthesised and applied to a substantial management problem. Students reaching this level of study will have successfully completed the taught unit concerned with research methods and design.
