Did you know that the tourism industry is a major contributor to the global economy? It accounted for 9.8% of world GDP in 2015 and supports 284 million people in employment – the equivalent of 1 in 11 jobs on the planet.

This Master’s degree has been developed to meet the growing demand for competent and resourceful managers in the rapidly expanding tourism industry. It is delivered on our Greenwich Campus, a UNESCO World Heritage Site which attracts tourists from all over the world.

Organisations that develop tourism facilities, and those that provide essential services such as transport and holidays, are set to expand in the future. There is increasing demand for experts in formulating tourism policies, tourism plans, strategies and tourism marketing. As a tourism professional, you will need to take a strategic perspective and help develop a competitive sector that is sustainable.

Our tourism teaching team consists of highly qualified academics, researchers and practitioners in the tourism field.

You will gain sound foundation of business and management principles as well as specialist tourism skills and expertise that are essential for a successful career in tourism management today.
