Within the international economy, tourism and travel is seen as a major employer and sector providing unique development opportunities to less developed countries. It's also one of the few economic activities responsible for intensified contributions towards nature and cultural heritage protection and conservation. All over the world, especially in Europe, tourism and travel are positioned as leaders in local communities’ activation programmes and used as an indicator of the quality of life.

This programme has been developed to answer the tourism and travel industry's demand for specialised managers and planners. It's constantly evolving to include the most up-to-date issues and to prepare entrepreneurs for the challenging tourism business environment. You'll acquire knowledge in sustainable tourism management, cultural heritage and tourism-led regeneration and be faced with challenges of marketing British tourism destinations. You'll be given the opportunity to explore niche tourism products, realise their potential and see how tourism relates to issues of global peace, justice, human rights and social inclusion.

The teaching on this course utilises our London location with a series of case studies including the the international trade fair of World Travel Market. We also have one of the most diverse international bodies of students, which allows us to teach a range of worldwide case studies based on students' own experiences and culture.

Our overseas study tour is the highlight of the course providing an early example of field research techniques and addressing tourism marketing, management, planning and sustainability issues. We also offer European Student Exchange Programme (Erasmus) and a range of work placement opportunities (including a one-year sandwich placement), allowing you to gain practical experience whilst studying.

We have previously organised and hosted the annual Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport student conference, with speakers including Hugh Sumner, former director of transport at the Olympic Delivery Agency.

The course has a Facebook page with news and events from alumni, students and staff.

    The focus of this module is management and the development of students as managers. Managers are crucial to getting things done, for example, they plan, coordinate, lead and oversee the work of others in order to meet organisational goals efficiently and effectively. The problems and challenges of managing in today’s ever-changing, increasingly uncertain, complex economic environment requires managers and leaders to have the knowledge, ability and skills to take action, such as managing information, delegating tasks, setting goals, building teams, motivating others and along with numerous other activities, achieve organisational success.

    This module provides students with an introduction to both traditional and contemporary management approaches to enable them to formulate effective business decisions when facing the demands of modern management. In addition to knowledge, the module provides students with management skills, such as self- awareness, communication and teamwork. A focus on attributes such as critical thinking and decision-making will help to prepare students for the ‘real world’ of business and management.

    This theory-to-practice approach is embedded in the module through the use of a business simulation which will help students to understand and apply key business concepts. Designed to replicate the multidimensional nature of business and management it encapsulates fundamental cross-functional disciplines such as sales, marketing, operations and finance. It progressively leads students through major decisions including human resources through to strategy as they manage their own virtual company.

    As each decision period progresses, students are given more control over their company, eventually becoming responsible for distribution, operations, product development and financial decisions. Student teams compete against each other in an online multiplayer environment.

    This simulation provides invaluable hands on experience for students, requiring them to analyse data, collaborate with each other, and make managerial decisions. By bringing concepts to life it also encourages more engagement with the theoretical material they are learning.

    Culture, Tourism and Regeneration explores the way in which culture and tourism have become a central part of regeneration strategies as cities try to adapt to the far-reaching social and economic changes that have transformed them over the last 60 years. This module explores the growth and increasing diversity of cultural tourism, the role it plays in urban centres and their regions and the ways in which cities have reinvented themselves as centres of leisure and recreation consumption using major cultural infrastructure investment, heritage commodification, events and festivals. London is a prime example of these processes, but the module will also consider examples from other parts of the UK and beyond.

    The assessment programme consists of three components: a photo essay analysing an aspect of cultural tourism (30%); a design and prototype for a visitor trail (30%) and finally a case study of urban regeneration (40%)

    Early theories of leadership assumed that the qualities which made great military, social and political leaders were those that would make great industrial leaders. However, the characteristics of leadership required for well-established steady-state organisations are far removed from many
    21st century workplaces where business leaders are confronted with unprecedented complexity and change. For example, the scope of entrepreneurship is widening far beyond micro and small-to medium sized enterprises as organisations that previously could not have been considered entrepreneurial enbrace innovation as a means of survival (Urban, 2012). In order to respond rapidly to changes in the external environment today’s leaders and managers are required to lead and manage innovation, and create an environment that fosters and enhances entrepreneurship.

    This module provides students with an introduction to both traditional and contemporary theories of leadership. It examines how cumulative knowledge of leadership theory can contribute to leading and managing innovation and entrepreneurial activity in modern organisations. Innovation and entrepreneurship are central themes of the module as students explore the characteristics of entrepreurship and identify conditions that foster innovation. Students will have an opportunity to interact with the local business community and are required to identify a local enterprise and interview its founder/current owner to determine whether they demonstrate the dynamic and visionary approach to business proposed by entrepreneurial theory to be typical of entrepreneurs.

    In small groups students are required to explore their own entrepreneurial skills through the proposal of an on-line business application. They are required to use their knowledge of management and leadership theory to manage its development, and they are required to produce a business plan to bring the application to market.

    Throughout the module there is an on-going focus on skills, for example students will be helped through the use of self-assessment questionnaires to identify their own leadership styles and preferences as well as foster their entrepreneurial skills.

    This module will address the critical issue of how current thinking on climate change and sustainability will impact on businesses and organisation. The need to create more sustainable organisations and businesses is fundamental to current and future organisational development strategies, and it is necessary for students to understand the growing influence of the sustainability agenda on industry. This influence takes on many forms, from government policies and international agreements to the measuring the impacts of organisational practices on the ecology and communities. It is clear that in the future, organisations, businesses, communities and individuals will be expected to understand and take responsibility for their economic, environmental and social impacts. This module will examine the current and future challenges, it will equip students with knowledge to deal with the challenge of creating sustainable forms of business that operate within ecological and socio-economic limits.

    It will explore the sustainability context, and how business practices will need to evolve to reflect the realities of operating within a globalised trading system that is striving to apply sustainability principles.

We believe that your university experience should be designed to enhance and support your professional life. We place as much emphasis on gaining skills relevant to the workplace as on learning the academic discipline that you are studying. We embed employability in every year of your journey with us, starting from year one modules, through short- and long placement modules to the professional environment stimulation modules such as Destination Management and Marketing.

This course is designed to offer an intellectually stimulating and distinctive programme that enables you to prepare for a satisfying career. Over the past twenty years, many of our graduates have developed rewarding careers in business, government and third sector tourism organisations, as managers in road, rail, sea and air transport, tour operators, destination managers and planners, and in research and consultancy.

Between 2016 and 2020 we're investing £125 million in the London Metropolitan University campus, moving all of our activity to our current Holloway campus in Islington, north London. This will mean the teaching location of some courses will change over time.

Whether you will be affected will depend on the duration of your course, when you start and your mode of study. The earliest moves affecting new students will be in September 2018. This may mean you begin your course at one location, but over the duration of the course you are relocated to one of our other campuses. Our intention is that no full-time student will change campus more than once during a course of typical duration.

All students will benefit from our move to one campus, which will allow us to develop state-of-the-art facilities, flexible teaching areas and stunning social spaces.

Please note, in addition to the tuition fee there may be additional costs for things like equipment, materials, printing, textbooks, trips or professional body fees.

Additionally, there may be other activities that are not formally part of your course and not required to complete your course, but which you may find helpful (for example, optional field trips). The costs of these are additional to your tuition fee and the fees set out above and will be notified when the activity is being arranged.
