More about this course
Our postgraduate International Events, Leisure and Tourism Management MSc course will offer you an opportunity to progress your career in the sector by providing you with an in-depth knowledge of the issues relating to management, as well as the core business functions of events, leisure, tourism and the wider creative industries sectors. We’ll also provide you with an international perspective into current industry challenges, including understanding the impact on matters of globalisation of business, ethical and legal implications, the social and environmental impact, profitability and much more.
The programme has been designed by London Metropolitan University experts and external specialist advisors, who possess extensive experience in their respective sectors and are aware of the skills which are necessary to succeed in the industry. The degree structure encourages in-depth learning of key functions within events, leisure and tourism, while giving you the opportunity to study the general field of business management with two elective postgraduate modules from the wide portfolio of the Guildhall School of Business and Law. This combination of events, leisure and tourism subjects will give you greater flexibility to decide which particular sector you’d like to go into after graduation. It will also improve your career prospects as many organisations in the wider creative industries sector work across these three industries.
Our course is designed to mimic the real world of events, leisure and tourism so that you’ll graduate with the ability to successfully achieve desired objectives, both alone and as part of a team. The collective involvement of students and teaching staff will enhance your learning experience and professional development. You’ll not only learn through academic theory, but also through practical problem-solving activities where you’ll work on solutions individually or draw on other students’ experience in group tasks.
