Tourism, Events and Hospitality Management
We have a long and successful history of teaching Tourism, Events and Hospitality Management at Manchester Metropolitan University. However, we are always striving to ensure that our programmes are at the cutting edge and are meeting the needs of students and the industry.
Whether you are interested in Tourism, Events or Hospitality we offer you the chance to achieve your full potential in a stimulating environment with the full support of a dedicated team of academic staff.
Our courses prepare you to work in these global sectors by combining academic theory, contemporary industry knowledge and practical management experience. Our approach to teaching and learning is innovative and dynamic involving you in live industry projects, networking events, conferences and workplace learning.
Our postgraduate programmes share these strengths and in 2015 we introduced a new suite of programmes in cooperation with our industry partners. We offer programmes for both recent graduates and for practitioners in industry who want to study part time to upgrade their qualifications and update their knowledge. The new suite of programmes also offers opportunity for students to be involved in paid internship as part of their programme.
All of our teaching is based on research and scholarship, some of which is internationally recognised for its quality. For example the Department is renowned for its work on Augmented Reality and wearable technologies and their role in tourism, events and hospitality.

You have the option to learn a new language as part of your programme and may want to use your language skill by spending a year on a paid placement abroad. We also offer the opportunity to study at one of our partner institutions in Europe, North America, Australia or Asia.
