Course Summary

This course prepares you for a successful and dynamic career in public, private and third sector organisations such as ministries, tourism boards, development agencies, SMEs, NGOs and consultancies. The University of Brighton's Tourism and International Development MSc provides the opportunity to learn from leading academics and practitioners working in the field of sustainable tourism development and management. You will learn about theories and applications associated with macro-level destinations' development and management issues, as well as micro-level interventions, such as those aimed at implementing ethical and responsible tourism practices and mass/niche tourism diversification approach, as well as strategically managing the positive and negative impacts of tourism. The School of Sport and Service Management, where the course is based, is an affiliate member of the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) which informs our teaching and your learning. We are also a member of the UNWTO Knowledge Network, which will give you access to the extensive UNWTO e-library. The course is suitable if you are looking to convert from another subject area and pursue a future career in tourism or if you already have a grounding in tourism or related subject areas such as business, management, events, hospitality or sport. Our graduates work for some of the world's largest tourism and travel companies. Many hold senior positions in private and public sector organisations, such as government tourism ministries and development agencies, NGO's, tour operators, cruise companies and international hotel chains. Those with entrepreneurial skills run their own enterprises, whilst others work as freelance consultants in a wide range of service industries, with many opting for a career in the not-for-profit and volunteer sector. A substantial number of graduates embark on PhDs before starting their career in academia.
