Core units

  • The Tourism & Hospitality Industries: This unit will provide you with a comprehensive appreciation of the tourism and hospitality business ecosystem. Based on Leipier’s tourism system, the module analyses the value chain of the industry and examines the role of each stakeholder in the tourism and hospitality value system and identifies linkages, interrelations and collaboration requirements.  The unit will be delivered through a series of industry guest lectures.

  • Food Production & Innovation Management: The unit is designed to extend your critical knowledge and understanding of food and consumer sciences and food chain management, with some emphasis on nutrition. You will be introduced to food production with a focus on global issues in food. It will also provide you with the relevant detailed knowledge on innovation management in the food service industry.

  • Food Operations Management: The dynamic and complex environment of the food industry requires managers to be able to manage effectively the core part of the business which is the operations function. This unit seeks to address the issues which distinguish food operations from those in other fields. It will also provide you with the opportunity to practice operational management skills and apply theoretical concepts in a food context.

  • Global Food & Drink: The unit will provide an in-depth analysis of the role of food and drink in the international hospitality, tourism, retail and events business environment. An understanding of the nature of our relationship with food socially, economically, politically, environmentally and in terms of technology is a valuable addition to other strategic and operational areas of expertise.

  • Business Strategy & Finance: The foundations of strategic analysis and choices that tie into an organisation’s business decisions. This includes private, public and third sector. You’ll study the corporate finance sources of organisations, reporting and interpreting financial data. This will help you understand the dynamics of the tourism, hospitality and leisure sectors.

  • Dissertation: An opportunity to study a subject in-depth, showing your understanding of it. The dissertation is the conclusion of your learning experience, where you’ll carry out a research project. You’ll use appropriate research methodology to collect and analyse data and present your findings. Your dissertation will be 15,000 words, and you’ll be taught about research methods.
