University of West London

Course Introduction

This course is designed for ambitious aspiring and existing hospitality managers, who wish to gain a recognised postgraduate qualification; the course is essentially strategic in orientation and places emphasis on the application of theory and concepts; throughout, examples are drawn from an international hospitality environment focusing on accommodation, and food and beverage issues; extensive use is made of employer engagement, which involves trips and visits to local hospitality providers as well as bringing key practitioners of international repute into the University. The internship course seeks to provide the same rigorous and challenging programme of professional practice as the MA but has the added advantage of including an internship incorporated into the period of study.

Course Modules

Modules include: the luxury hospitality business environment; designing the customer experience 1; designing the customer experience 2; business performance analysis; brand reputation management; e'strategies and systems; research methods; dissertation. Internship route: organisational behaviour in theory and practice; management consultancy; the internship.
