The BA (Hons) Tourism Management award recognises the integrated nature of business and tourism requiring students to understand the context, nature, role and significance of tourism functions in business and other settings. Both are particularly examined in a global context and set against the current debate on the environment. This enables students to acquire a clear understanding of the central role of tourism within the business world and in the wider sustainability setting. Students will be encouraged to develop well-researched, logical, and integrated solutions to multi-faceted problems in uncertain and dynamic content.Course Objective
