Overview

The Master of Science (MSc) in Tourism & Travel Management is an exciting programme which leverages on the expertise of two universities - U21Global and The University of Nottingham.

The programme combines study through U21Global and The University of Nottingham, leading to the award of two qualifications - U21Global's Postgraduate Diploma of Business Administration and a Master of Science (MSc) in Tourism and Travel Management from The University of Nottingham.

The combined programme aims to develop a broad understanding of management principles and practices applicable to the tourism and travel industries. The course focuses on all aspects of tourism management, including managing people, managing financial resources, market research, marketing and strategy, eBusiness, tourism policy and planning, cultural and heritage tourism, consumer behaviour, sustainability and service delivery.

The programme is ideal for graduates who want to develop skills in the management and marketing of tourism and travel. You may already be working in the industry and want to enhance your knowledge or you may be looking to gain skills that would enable you to join this vibrant industry.

Developed by the Christel DeHaan Tourism and Travel Research Institute (an integral part of Nottingham University Business School), the programme comprises 12 subjects and a dissertation, delivered through an elearning platform.

Nottingham University Business School is a leading centre for management education in one of UK's most prominent and popular universities. The School is highly ranked as an international business school, both for its research and teaching.
