The Course
The Masters the MSc in International Hotel & Tourism Management is designed to provide a postgraduate programme with marked emphasis on the application of the theoretical content of operational and strategic management in the hotel and tourist services industry.

Teaching and learning is student focussed and includes lectures, seminars, case studies and tutorials.
