Master in International Tourism, Hospitality and Event Management - Máster en Turismo Internacional, Hostelería y Gestión de Eventos
The tourism and hospitality sectors are major economic forces in most countries across the globe. To excel in this industry one needs to be a good leader, manager, entrepreneur and show awareness of the ethical, cultural, environmental and social settings within which you are working.
This new Masters degree encourages an entrepreneurial approach to examining growth opportunities in tourism and hospitality businesses and destinations. It addresses the needs of both the commercial and non-commercial elements of the sector, the latter often requiring public/private partnership forms of governance.
The course develops the appropriate skills, tools and knowledge to operate innovatively in the global tourism and hospitality environments. The nature of the teaching and assessment allows you to apply the theories and processes learnt in class to your preferred setting (eg public or private sector; tourism or hospitality industries; UK, European or international).
