Hospitality Business Management

Overview

The UK hospitality industry is thriving, with a growing demand for highly knowledgeable graduates to fulfil management functions across the sector. We will help you to be innovative and forward thinking, to manage complex businesses effectively and to develop these businesses by thinking strategically. Putting theory into practice, you will develop your project management skills devising, developing and successfully implementing an array of hospitality events designed by industry.

You could gain a year's industry experience and boost your employability skills by choosing the sandwich option on this course. We are proud of our record of helping graduates find their ideal job - many meet their future employers for the first time through this course.

If you have studied for an HND or Foundation degree, we also offer a one-year BSc (Hons) Hospitality Leadership & Management (Top-Up). If you select this option, you will study the year three modules listed below.

If you choose to study our sandwich option, you will spend your third year working in the hospitality industry, gaining the practical skills you need to be a successful leader in the sector. Our placement students have worked at companies both at home and abroad including the Radisson Blu here in Leeds and La Gorce Country Club in Miami.

Research Excellence Framework 2014

Research Excellence Framework 2014: 59% of our research submitted was assessed as world leading or internationally excellent.
Using Leeds as a case study, you will experience the full range of hospitality offerings including restaurants, hotels, coffee shops, pubs and more. We can help you find vacancies or opportunities, or pursue any of your special interests for your work placement during your third year.

Regular guest speakers will give you a broad view of the industry and provide networking opportunities. There are a number of field trips - some will be module related and others are for the purpose of personal or team development skills.

There is an opportunity to negotiate your own assessments, tailor the course to your own interests and goals, and undertake on-going training throughout your course in specific industry interests and qualifications.

The foundation of this course is based on the view that hospitality is, by definition, international so our graduates have gone on to work all over the world - Canada, Africa, Australia, Hong Kong are just a few of the places they have been successful. If you take a gap year after study you can utilise your skills in well-paid roles around the world to finance your travels.

“I chose my course because I loved the idea of spending a placement year in the hospitality industry. Thanks to my tutors, I’ve been able to experience the hospitality trade first hand, working for a good brand with hotels all over the country. The experience has helped me decide what I want to do with my future and I’m hoping to join a graduate scheme when I finish my degree.
