Tourism Management

Our Tourism Management degree equips you with up-to-date knowledge on the key tourism theories and will highlight the major trends and developments in the field. It also demonstrates how the underpinning theories can be applied by tourism organisations in real business settings. You will gain a truly interdisciplinary outlook on tourism as the degree curriculum embeds knowledge from a variety of related subjects, including geography, finance, human resources management, operations management and events management.

The degree seeks to actively engage with local stakeholders and some key elements of its curriculum focuses on tourism development in the city of Liverpool and the wider region. The curriculum is research-driven and business practice-based; this provides you with up-to-date and first-hand tourism experience, which can represent a key advantage in the highly competitive job market. Liverpool is an ideal place to study tourism as the city and the wider region host a number of the key tourist attractions in the UK. The legacy of Capital of Culture sees Liverpool’s continuing development of new arts, heritage, and cultural attractions, retail developments and luxury hotels. As a result, there is a need for highly qualified graduates in Tourism.
