Subject

Hospitality management

Working in the hospitality industry is all about giving people a truly memorable experience. Running a great restaurant, maintaining a beautiful hotel or putting on the best club nights makes for a rewarding and challenging career.

Our BA Hospitality Management degree will provide you with the knowledge and skills you need to thrive in a growth industry that employs approximately 1.9 million people in the UK alone.

UEL is conveniently located a short walk away from London City Airport and some of the capital’s most famous venues – including the Excel Centre and O2 Arena – and learning in London gives you access to some of the best hotels, restaurants and attractions in the world.

The course is designed to give you a great head-start in your career; it is accredited by the Institute of Hospitality and you’ll enjoy placements and guest lectures held with industry leaders across the capital.

You’ll have a choice to study the core BA, or one of two targeted pathways – International Hospitality Management and Hospitality Entrepreneur – that allow you to focus on the global hospitality sector or entrepreneurship in the hospitality industry.

This course sits in a wide group of smaller subjects that don't necessarily have that much in common - so bear this in mind when you look at any employment data. Most graduates took a hospitality, events management or tourism-related course, but there are a group of sports and leisure graduates in here as well who do different things. Events management was the most common job for graduates from this group of subjects, and so it’s no surprise that graduates from specialist events management courses did better last year than many of the other graduates under this subject umbrella - but all did about as well as graduates on average or a little better. If you want to find out more about specific job paths for your chosen subject area, it's a good idea to go on open days and talk to tutors about what previous graduates went on to do, or to have a look at university department websites.
