The tourism economy is gaining momentum, not only in the UK, but worldwide. As potential recovery from a global recession is promised, more households are reported to be spending a growing share of the household budget on vacations. Guest lecturers, site visits and the opportunity for getting involved in real projects with organisations help make this degree relevant to the industry today. 

This Tourism Management course offered by University of Suffolk provides the opportunity to gain industry specific knowledge, plus essential management skills. The close links with relevant organisations in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors mean that students have the opportunity to learn from industry experience. In 2015 the students on the programme project managed a high profile conference 'Suffolk Unlocked' to celebrate and share with industry professionals the benefits that the county of Suffolk offers to business, tourists and day visitors. 

Working with a range of professionals and sponsors, a dedicated team of Tourism and Event students were able to gain a range of management skills to enhance their CV, and to support their employability. In the Suffolk Business School we will work with you as an individual to ensure you are 'Business Ready' when you graduate.
