Overview

The programme is designed to develop proactive graduates who will be equipped to gain appropriate and rewarding employment and make an immediate and on-going contribution within the workplace. As such they will be proficient in a team environment, have acquired skills that will enable them to reflect upon a problem or
situation and identify appropriate strategies, and have the confidence and capability to allow them to develop as life-long learners. The programme combines the
multidisciplinary nature of business studies provision together with the development of tourism management skills. Key themes developed over the course include
financial decision making, human resource management, marketing, strategic management, sustainable business and destination management. Additionally, there
is a focus on the development of students’ intellectual and practical skills that will support them both as learners and as future managers.

 provide assessment and project based tasks that allows students to apply knowledge and skills appropriately within an authentic context;
