Travel has become a vital part of modern life. People travel for work, to study or just for fun and as more can reach global destinations than ever before, skillful professionals are needed to move, accommodate and service masses.
This is a specialisation of the Business Management programme.
Tourism is a sector that is at the heart of many of the big moments in modern life such as major music or sports events, family weekends or a dream holiday on an island. We will ensure that you have the necessary skills to manage operations and businesses across a diverse range of contexts including tourism, cultural heritage, festivals and events.
We give considerable importance to increasing students' employability skills. IBS has set up its UpSkill scheme, which enhances and develops the skills which are most demandable in the job arena to ensure that our graduates have an advantage over others in job applications. Read more about it here.
