MA International Tourism and Aviation Management with Internship

UWL University of West London
Campus Full time 18  September 2017 United Kingdom London

The Master's programme in International Tourism and Aviation Management seeks to prepare aspiring individuals for a managerial career within either the tourism and aviation industry. [+]

MA International Tourism and Aviation Management with Internship The Master's programme in International Tourism and Aviation Management seeks to prepare aspiring individuals for a managerial career within either the tourism and aviation industry. For existing practitioners, it offers the opportunity to develop and redefine knowledge and assess trends and changing management practices within their industry. It is offered as a one year full-time and two year part-time course. The Internship Course seeks to provide the same rigorous and challenging programme of professional practice as the MA but has the added advantage of including a 24 week paid internship incorporated into the period of study. This makes it ideal for students seeking to add a practical dimension to their studies and understand the demands of workplace supervision and management. Internship opportunities exist throughout the tourism and aviation industries both within the UK and overseas. The internship process is co-ordinated by the University’s own dedicated internship team and draws upon contacts with over three thousand employers. The MA programme is essentially global in perspective drawing upon international case study material. In adopting a generic business and management approach to the study of tourism and aviation management the course seeks to avoid the excessive subject specialisation that characterises many of its competitors. In doing so it widens career opportunities and the possibility of movement between the two sectors. The key strength of the programme is its simple yet flexible structure. Employer engagement is assured with guest speakers drawn from industry and the use of ‘live client ’briefs. The programme is taught by a young but experienced team all with a background in either tourism and/or aviation management. Many of these staff are extensively published and are asked to speak at events and conferences throughout the world. The MA is taught in a dedicated learning environment within the university with elements of the programme sponsored by key industry players. The course has links with ‘sister programmes’ in Europe, Asia and North America allowing the opportunity for staff and student exchange. In addition, it is accredited by the Institute of Travel and Tourism. The programme is delivered in a Q.A.A. (UK Government Quality Assurance Agency) centre of excellence for tourism and aviation education. Field work, trips and visits are a feature of the course. [-]
