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 2024-25MOD1409MLevel 42024-25OptionalIntermediate French 2 2024-25MOD1410MLevel 42024-25OptionalIntermediate German 1 2024-25MOD1411MLevel 42024-25OptionalIntermediate German 2 2024-25MOD1412MLevel 42024-25OptionalIntermediate Spanish 2 2024-25MOD1414MLevel 42024-25OptionalIntermediate Spanish 1 2024-25MOD1413MLevel 42024-25OptionalProfessional Development 2024-25MGT1027MLevel 42024-25This 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 2025-26MGT2291MLevel 52025-26This module builds on the principles of the United Nations Global Compact and the ‘purpose’ of the Principles of Responsible Management Education, as well as the ‘essence’ of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, Vision 2050, to develop the knowledge, skills, and capabilities of students to be future creators of sustainable value for business, and to work towards an increasingly inclusive society and a more sustainable global economy. This involves rethinking and reengineering business strategies and activities, to understand organisational constructs and influences, as well as that of their ’own agency’, to be the change that produces and secures economic, social, and environmental value for current and future generations. This means systematically examining contemporary business, economic development, and the historic relationships with a ‘Eurocentric’ social-cultural construct within global commerce and management, to discover a fairer and increasingly viable future. As a consequence, this module will ask students to explore and reflect on responsible management, sustainability, and ethical practice, as well as the resultant effects on global society, and the environmental costs created by human interaction as they analyse and evaluate contrasting strategies and approaches. This will not only provide a better understanding of the challenges of responsibly managing sustainability and ethical practice but will also identify and emphasise the questions to be addressed in respect of their future management endeavours.OptionalEvent Design and Production 2025-26TOU2231MLevel 52025-26The 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 2025-26TOU2234MLevel 52025-26The 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 2025-26TOU2235MLevel 52025-26Experience 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 2025-26MOD2597MLevel 52025-26OptionalIntermediate French for Business 4 2025-26MOD2598MLevel 52025-26OptionalIntermediate German for Business 4 2025-26MOD2600MLevel 52025-26OptionalIntermediate German for Business 3 2025-26MOD2599MLevel 52025-26OptionalIntermediate Spanish for Business 3 2025-26MOD2601MLevel 52025-26OptionalIntermediate Spanish for Business 4 2025-26MOD2602MLevel 52025-26OptionalInternational Business Environment 2025-26ECO2205Level 52025-26This module explains the gains to be made from economic integration and the globalisation process. It examines the main patterns of trade and exchange and shows how free trade can be influenced by the government and the future risks of protectionism. Trade is also supported by international capital markets and exchange rate determination as well as international policy coordination and these factors need to be well understood.OptionalLIBS International Year Abroad 2025-26MGT2286MLevel 52025-26Lincoln International Business School (LIBS) believes that an option to study overseas is a valuable educational opportunity for our students.

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 2025-26MOD1409MLevel 42025-26OptionalIntermediate French 2 2025-26MOD1410MLevel 42025-26OptionalIntermediate German 1 2025-26MOD1411MLevel 42025-26OptionalIntermediate German 2 2025-26MOD1412MLevel 42025-26OptionalIntermediate Spanish 2 2025-26MOD1414MLevel 42025-26OptionalIntermediate Spanish 1 2025-26MOD1413MLevel 42025-26OptionalProfessional Development 2025-26MGT1027MLevel 42025-26This 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 2026-27MGT2291MLevel 52026-27This module builds on the principles of the United Nations Global Compact and the ‘purpose’ of the Principles of Responsible Management Education, as well as the ‘essence’ of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, Vision 2050, to develop the knowledge, skills, and capabilities of students to be future creators of sustainable value for business, and to work towards an increasingly inclusive society and a more sustainable global economy. This involves rethinking and reengineering business strategies and activities, to understand organisational constructs and influences, as well as that of their ’own agency’, to be the change that produces and secures economic, social, and environmental value for current and future generations. This means systematically examining contemporary business, economic development, and the historic relationships with a ‘Eurocentric’ social-cultural construct within global commerce and management, to discover a fairer and increasingly viable future. As a consequence, this module will ask students to explore and reflect on responsible management, sustainability, and ethical practice, as well as the resultant effects on global society, and the environmental costs created by human interaction as they analyse and evaluate contrasting strategies and approaches. This will not only provide a better understanding of the challenges of responsibly managing sustainability and ethical practice but will also identify and emphasise the questions to be addressed in respect of their future management endeavours.OptionalEvent Design and Production 2026-27TOU2231MLevel 52026-27The 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 2026-27TOU2234MLevel 52026-27The 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 2026-27TOU2235MLevel 52026-27Experience 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 2026-27MOD2597MLevel 52026-27OptionalIntermediate French for Business 4 2026-27MOD2598MLevel 52026-27OptionalIntermediate German for Business 4 2026-27MOD2600MLevel 52026-27OptionalIntermediate German for Business 3 2026-27MOD2599MLevel 52026-27OptionalIntermediate Spanish for Business 3 2026-27MOD2601MLevel 52026-27OptionalIntermediate Spanish for Business 4 2026-27MOD2602MLevel 52026-27OptionalInternational Business Environment 2026-27ECO2205Level 52026-27This module explains the gains to be made from economic integration and the globalisation process.
