    Course Summary

    Tourism is a huge industry both in the UK and in the world as a whole. Not only is it growing very quickly, it is particularly accessible to entrepreneurs and offers excellent options for sustainable growth. The University of Westminster’s BA in Tourism with Business is a great way to develop both your general business skills and a range of highly specific skills associated with running a business in the travel, tourism and hospitality industries.

    You’ll learn the basics of business and business management. You’ll explore the use of modern information systems, marketing techniques and ways to get meaningful results from financial analysis. You’ll also learn the role of tourism in post-industrial markets, how destinations, travel providers and hospitality providers interact to form business ecosystems, and the unique challenges presented by finding and marketing tourism enterprises successfully.

    The course’s international focus is further enhanced with an annual trip to a business in Malta, Hong Kong, the USA and/or Australia.
