About Tourism, Development and Policy at University of Exeter Business School, University of Exeter

Taken over 12-months, the programme equips future managers, administrators and entrepreneurs with cutting-edge knowledge about the operation, management and government of global tourism. Covers themes such as tourist behaviour, tourism marketing and sustainable tourism management and hot topics involving tourism like climate change, poverty alleviation and second homes.

Now with new options for work experience and Event Management, it is suitable for those interested in furthering their career prospects through obtaining a specialised postgraduate qualification. Bursaries and scholarships are available to those with good qualification in business and management, the social sciences and humanities.

Tourism is often portrayed as the world's largest industry, and this is reflected in the wide array of master’s programmes in the subject across the globe.

The MSc in Tourism, Development and Policy at Exeter is different from the rest and it offers you a head start in your career. Sure, like so many other programmes, we make certain you have a strong background in the fundamentals of tourism management whether it is in planning, strategy, operations or marketing.

What goes on inside an organisation is, though, only part of the story as are business skills. Environment is also central to our programme because in tourism, the environment is the experience. Just think, environments are bought, shaped, packaged, promoted and sold to visitors. Understand the environments in which tourism takes place, and you understand tourism and the tourist more fully.

By taking this extra step, our unique master’s programme equips you with the skills and knowledge to help you face up to the challenges of tourism development in the twenty-first century. The emphasis is on managing the linkages between the tourism environment and business through appropriate strategy, planning and actions.

Not surprisingly given their view of the bigger picture, our graduates have been highly desirable to employers inside and outside the tourism industry. New hotels, national, regional and local tourism organisations, and tourism charities and pressure groups have been recent destinations as well as consultancy businesses, investment agencies, PR and marketing groups, and planning authorities.

Our programme is accessible not only to those with training in tourism or business studies who want to further their understanding, but also to those from the social sciences and humanities. Students with backgrounds in geography, sociology, anthropology, political science and even engineering have successfully completed this rewarding programme. What’s more, if you’ve got strong qualifications, irrespective of the subject, you may qualify for one of our generous bursaries and scholarships.
