These are truly global industries, constantly struggling for resources. Crucial to their development and success is being able to research the needs of their customers and other stakeholders, the impacts they have on the industry, markets, and destinations, as well as their available resources. Research is an integral part of the tourism industry and tourism management. Upon completion of this module, students should be able to evaluate the significance and use of published data and original research within tourism, events and sports business management; develop and implement research strategies appropriate to the study of these interconnected industries and their stakeholders; and collect, analyse, interpret, and present data that supports local and global tourism, events and sports businesses in their decision-making process. This knowledge will be of relevance and will enhance the academic work produced during their second and final year of study across the three programmes. The module will discuss a range of highly popular global case-studies with the areas of tourism, events, and sports business management such as the Olympics, Eurovision, or the MICE industry (meetings, incentive travel, conferences, exhibitions). It is vital to introduce key concepts to the successful running of such case-studies such as experience management (the visitor experience or the tourist experience for tourism management; the venue experience or the event attendee experience for events management; the fan or the club experience for sports business management) before proceeding to more complex issue in the 2nd and final year of study. The module achieves that with the help of a range of theoretical and practical case-studies. The module complements the year 1 core tourism, events, and sports business modules very well because it focuses on the practical application of these key concepts, and it allows their observation in practice with the help of fieldtrips and fieldwork. Students will engage with practical activities related to these three themes and in addition they will push their knowledge and skills further by investigating the themes through fieldwork and data collection. This module provides students with an opportunity to develop a range of research skills, both quantitative and qualitative. It enables students to understand the nature of evidence in research as well as undertake their own independent research. In doing so, it aims to prepare students for their final year dissertation (or consultancy project) by giving them the chance to develop skills, ideas, and confidence to undertake a major piece of primary research. The module also encourages students to evaluate research using the key concepts of reliability and validity.OptionalIntermediate French 1 2023-24MOD1409MLevel 42023-24OptionalIntermediate French 2 2023-24MOD1410MLevel 42023-24OptionalIntermediate German 1 2023-24MOD1411MLevel 42023-24OptionalIntermediate German 2 2023-24MOD1412MLevel 42023-24OptionalIntermediate Spanish 2 2023-24MOD1414MLevel 42023-24OptionalIntermediate Spanish 1 2023-24MOD1413MLevel 42023-24OptionalProfessional Development 2023-24MGT1027MLevel 42023-24This module is designed to enable students to identify potential career paths, understand power, emotional intelligence and responsibility in a professional context.

The emergence of digital cultures because of this aggressive digital expansion is fascinating within the three fields. Known for their need for a high number of employees and people management, the three industries are being automated and digitalised at an unprecedented speed. AI and chat bots are replacing customer service; service and social robots are efficiently replacing the human workforce across these three sectors. The remaining human workforce is required to adapt and embrace technological advances at an unprecedented speed. This leads to changes in thought patters, work patterns, organisational structures and cultures across the board. The emergence of a digital economy has significantly influenced the nature of tourism, events and sport business management and marketing. Cultural and technological shifts seem to have not only led to a further proliferation of events for example but altered expectations as people place higher value on innovation and creativity. Moreover, the way destinations, attractions, and other tourism related activities and aspects, or events are developed, promoted, and experienced, or sports clubs and fan engagement is designed, continue to change as cultures and technologies interact. Participatory cultures mean that audiences and delegates interact in physical space and cyberspace in different ways; the experience can no longer be scripted and controlled. The way people consume experiences shifts, as they engage in social media, in an environment which is both diverse and rich in content and networks; events are multi-media, mixing traditional face to face interaction, with animated, visual, augmented and audio channels. Attendees expect to be able to communicate, connect, learn, and work whenever and wherever they want including while engaging with tourism, events, or sports, whilst travelling or at leisure. industry narratives are being constructed in cyberspace, shifting the way destinations, events, attractions, and service providers are understood and imagined. This module explores the interaction of contemporary cultural shifts (including networked and participatory cultures) and technological change.OptionalEthics, Sustainability and Responsibility 2024-25MGT2291MLevel 52024-25OptionalEvent Design and Production 2024-25TOU2231MLevel 52024-25The contemporary events landscape has become a multi-sensorial, dynamic, and spectacularised sector. The vibrancy of activities that are now intersected across the events industry means that the design and underpinning production have come decisive event areas. This module will highlight, through knowledge and skills development, why event design and production have become pivotal event areas.OptionalEvent Operations 2024-25TOU2234MLevel 52024-25The purpose of the Event Operations module is to introduce students to a range of key event operations theories such as health and safety, risk management, people management and the Principles of Law governing events. This module introduces students to the structure and legal frameworks within which the providers of events services are permitted to operate. Management from the events sector perspective involves live interaction with a range of stakeholders: consumers, suppliers, performers, employees and regulatory agencies. It is therefore important that managers and organisers have awareness and have both an understanding of the relevant substantive law as well as an awareness of procedure and practice in order that they can make an informed choice and can be held accountable for their 'real' world decisions. The learning programme focuses on encouraging the critical evaluation of the people management skills that leads to a positive impact on employee performance and their optimal contribution to the live events sector. The nature of the service relationship is examined critically as being essential to the successful growth of organisations in the visitor economy. It is, therefore, necessary to understand the requirements for effective HRM in the events sector.OptionalInnovative and Inclusive Event Experiences 2024-25TOU2235MLevel 52024-25Experience is an important feature found across the events industry. It is a key dynamic regularly written into the strategic aims and objectives of events of all types. However, experience is not a keyword that can be simply defined. In fact, an attempt to fully understand experience is problematic given its subjectivity and fluidity as a word. This module, therefore, considers the complexities of experience and critically assesses the docile use of the term experience within an event context. This module will raise awareness about the importance of comprehending the elasticity and dynamism of experience for the purpose of strategic event advantage.OptionalIntermediate French for Business 3 2024-25MOD2597MLevel 52024-25OptionalIntermediate French for Business 4 2024-25MOD2598MLevel 52024-25OptionalIntermediate German for Business 4 2024-25MOD2600MLevel 52024-25OptionalIntermediate German for Business 3 2024-25MOD2599MLevel 52024-25OptionalIntermediate Spanish for Business 3 2024-25MOD2601MLevel 52024-25OptionalIntermediate Spanish for Business 4 2024-25MOD2602MLevel 52024-25OptionalInternational Business Environment 2024-25ECO2205Level 52024-25This module explains the gains to be made from economic integration and the globalisation process.

The cost of this trip is approximately £900, which students can pay in instalments, plus food costs. Students are responsible for their subsistence costs on this visit, which is not assessed.

Students may be able to take part in optional study visits throughout the course to events such as exhibitions. Those who choose to attend can expect to pay between £20 and £40 per visit, which may be used for food, drinks, and admission fees to events and venues.

Learn a Modern Language

An integral part of the course is the option to learn or improve a modern language. Languages available include French, German Spanish, Italian, Mandarin Chinese, and Business English Communications. The language studied is can be related to the country that is chosen for a study placement.

The support and guidance throughout my time studying was exceptional. The academic staff and lecturers were always approachable and very helpful. I couldn’t have asked for a better course to study.
