Course Summary

This course develops broad business skills while also offering a specialist pathway in hospitality and tourism management that starts after the first semester. The course is covered by the prestigious AACSB accreditation for Newcastle Business School, which was Business School of the Year at The Times Higher Education Awards 2015. Teaching is backed up by a well-designed support system that helps ensure a successful learning journey. We make sure that extensive feedback, from both tutors and peers, is built into the course.

Our assessment strategy is based on our understanding that everyone has different needs, strengths and enthusiasms. Assessment is based on course work and our methods will include essays, reports, group work, presentations, and the master’s dissertation or consultancy project. On completion our graduates typically go into professional and graduate management positions and, by the end of the course, you’ll be well-equipped to follow them. The course could also lead you to a postgraduate research degree such as an MPhil, PhD and Professional Doctorate.

Your tutors will use a variety of teaching methods including lectures, seminars and workshops. As this is a master’s course there is a major element of independent learning and self-motivated reflection. Teaching is backed up by a well-designed support system that helps ensure a successful learning journey. We make sure that extensive feedback, from both tutors and peers, is built into the course. Our assessment strategy is based on our understanding that everyone has different needs, strengths and enthusiasms. The University has also invested heavily in IT labs and facilities.

The course could also lead you to a postgraduate research degree such as an MPhil, PhD and Professional Doctorate. Whatever you decide to do, you will have the transferable skills that employers expect from a master’s graduate from Northumbria University. These include the ability to tackle complex issues through conceptualisation and undertaking research, the ability to contribute to new processes and knowledge, and the ability to formulate balanced judgements when considering incomplete or ambiguous data.
