MSC INTERNATIONAL EVENTS, LEISURE AND TOURISM MANAGEMENT
London Metropolitan University
This all-encompassing master's in Events, Leisure and Tourism Management, with an International dimension, is your way to new professional highs. Boost your career and professional prospects in the UK and internationally.
Our International Events, Leisure and Tourism Management MSc will provide you with strong academic and professional skills that will help you to become a leader within events, leisure, tourism or the wider creative industries sectors.
The programme combines the principles of generic and specific management knowledge. It will provide you with the opportunity to develop relevant skills that will help you become a senior figure in events, leisure, tourism or another related sector. At the same time it will help you to develop broader skills and attributes, which will enable you to succeed in the general management sector.
The 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 environment impact, profitability and much more.
THE STUDY PROGRAMME
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.
Our assessment methods are designed to help you develop skills that are vital for work in the broader creative industries sector. Your acquired knowledge and skills will be assessed through a variety of methods, which may include individual and group tasks such as case studies, coursework, in-class tests, reports, essays, reflective blogs, presentations, portfolios, a research proposal and a dissertation. All core modules are assessed by two pieces of work, each worth 50% of the module final mark.
