About this course
The course is the ideal springboard if you’re looking for a successful management career in one of the world’s fastest-growing industries.
Hospitality and tourism offer exciting career opportunities because, despite the broader economic outlook, these industries continue to thrive around the world – and employers are always looking for accomplished graduates. Our exciting, fast-paced and highly practical course will prepare you for a wide range of management and leadership positions, all with a global perspective and within a multi-cultural environment.
You’ll engage regularly with top employers and there are multiple opportunities to explore the industries in action. And where better to study than our London campus, surrounded by some of the world’s most iconic hotels and attractions, which are visited by over 32 million tourists a year?
Why Coventry University London?
We believe that there is no better place to learn about business than to study in the heart of one of the most successful business and financial centres in the world. Launched in 2010 and located in the City of London, we are minutes away from the Bank of England and the London Stock Exchange, and are surrounded by several blue chip companies.
This course is focused on career-building, so there’s a strong blend of practical content alongside your academic theory. We will connect you with industry and employers, bring the world of work into the classroom, and provide opportunities which will enrich your CV.
Your tutors on this course have close relationships with professional bodies, including the Chartered Management Institute and the major trade associations within hospitality and tourism. This means we’re always up to date with what employers are looking for in graduates.
You’ll enjoy many opportunities to mix with employers, such as The Ritz London and City Cruises. Guest speakers, such as travel or wine companies, will explain how their operations work, and you’ll hear career advice sessions led by employers. There are opportunities to get out and about within London, with visits to major employers, your own independent research, and trips to world-famous hotels. There are also opportunities to work on real-life projects for employers and to work or study overseas. And thanks to our lecturers’ personal connections worldwide, you might find yourself engaged in a live online debate with employers or students in other countries.
Hospitality and tourism have outperformed the global economy for 6 consecutive years, offering excellent career prospects for graduates.
Worldwide tourism grew by 6% in early 2017. In 2016, tourism alone provided employment for 109 million people, contributing $2.3 trillion to the world economy. In 2017, the hospitality industry was the UK’s 4th biggest employer. Despite economic and political challenges across the world, people are travelling more than ever, for both business and leisure purposes – which means more opportunities in management and leadership, too.
You’ll graduate with a sound understanding of the hospitality and tourism industries, including how to run an operation successfully and profitably. You’ll also have a wide set of skills which will transfer across to any other sector, including principles of management and softer skills such as communication and teamwork. You might even start your own business.
Where our graduates work
When you graduate, you could choose a career pathway in tourism or hospitality, or work for a large organisation which spans both.
You might join an independent hotel or a chain (either in the UK or overseas), on a graduate programme or in a permanent named role. You could work for a tour operator, a travel agency, an airline or a cruise company, or work in incentive or corporate travel. Roles will also be open to you in publishing, PR, journalism, IT or consultancy, for example, where they relate to hospitality and tourism.
Alternaitvely, you will have a wide range of skills which will appeal to employers in other industries, so you would be free to branch out beyond hospitality and tourism.
