BA (Hons) Tourism and Hospitality Management

Become a strong leader within the tourism industry by studying the BA in Tourism and Hospitality Management at BSBI, offered in partnership with University for the Creative Arts (UCA), a Gold Standard institution under the Teaching Excellence and Student Outcomes Framework.

During your BA, you’ll learn about working in an international business environment through modules including: Economics for the Global Service Industry, Transportation: The Airline and Cruising Industry as well as Sustainable Tourism in the Developing World. You’ll also have the opportunity to choose between either the Hospitality and Food and Beverage Pathway or Tourism and Events Management Pathway, depending on your career goals.

The BA requires you to choose between the three- or four-year international route. The four-year route will include a foundation year which will help you develop core knowledge of creative business and management. Additionally, you’ll be fully prepared for using English in academic work.

Throughout the program, you’ll develop expert knowledge of the tourism and hospitality industry which is needed if you want to help your business achieve its goals. Lectures, discussions, and class visits will inform your learning and give you the opportunity to learn practical skills.
