Program description

BA (Hons) Tourism Management

Tourism is a major human activity and a service industry with considerable economic, social, political, cultural and environmental significance both domestically and internationally. This course, which was the first of its kind in the UK, aims to produce graduates who have an understanding of the operation of the private and public sectors and the interactions between them with respect to tourism. It also provides students with the opportunity of developing more specific vocational skills related to potential career areas in either the public or private sectors involved in tourism.  

This course is well recognised throughout the industry as producing graduates with exceptional vocational skills. It is further strengthened by the University's International Centre for Tourism and Hospitality Research - recognised by the World Tourism Organisation and staffed by some of the leading academics in the field.  

BU was ranked number one for Tourism in the Guardian University League Tables 2008 and again in 2009.
