Hospitality management

The Hospitality Management Foundation Degree offers a great opportunity for those who aspire to work within this dynamic and international sector. This two-year programme is for anyone wanting to develop their hospitality skills within the context of adapting to meet the ever-changing demands of both employers and self-employment.

Students will consider how resources are organised and managed within the sector, using technology and building financial and analytical skills to support commercial decision-making and planning. In addition, employer-driven events and contacts offer significant professional development opportunities to students as well as having a demonstrable impact on their future hospitality careers.

The programme’s emphasis is on equipping students with the ability, skills and knowledge to successfully develop their hospitality skills to create opportunities for career progression or to start their own business.

The Foundation Degree is designed to enable students to progress to the BA (Hons) Hospitality and Tourism Management Top Up at Westminster Kingsway University.
