Program description

MSc International Tourism Management

Are you interested in a career in tourism where you can help build a more sustainable future for all?

If you want to develop the advanced knowledge and skills to make vital decisions that influence the future of the tourism industry locally and internationally, our MSc International Tourism Management is perfect for you.

The travel and tourism sector continues to grow faster than the overall economy. In addition to the fiscal benefits it offers, tourism can also contribute to environmental improvements and enhanced quality of life. At the same time, tourism is also increasingly associated with a variety of economic, sociocultural and environmental challenges.

Founded on the principles underpinning the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals, Swansea University’s MSc in International Tourism Management will equip you with the skills and insights needed to critically evaluate the future of the tourism industry, whether in the UK or overseas. Blending key concepts from business, management and the social sciences, and examples from across the globe, you’ll leave prepared to advocate for more responsible forms of tourism at the local, national and global level.

You will also experience local and overseas destinations through a series of field visits, including an international Tourism Study Tour designed to help you understand the complexities and requirements of managing a tourism destination or enterprise.
