Career opportunities

By definition, the scope of the hospitality and tourism sector also stretches into its support industries, especially where those support industries supply or support specific services unique to the tourism and hospitality sector. For example, specialist applied information technology (IT) such as hotel and restaurant management systems or travel reservation systems represent substantial sub-sectors in themselves, with their own exciting career paths.

Overall the tourism and hospitality industry is a major service sector in the world economy, encompassing a huge variety of services and accordingly a huge variety of skills, all of which require training that is both specific and relevant.

Our graduates gain qualifications enabling them to work on managerial positions in the field of tourism management, gaining a competitive advantage and increasing their value as well as attractiveness on the wider labour market.
