Advanced Research Methods

The main aim of this module is to give students the opportunity to apply their theoretical knowledge of the research process and produce an independent research proposal. This is to enable progressive development towards the BSc research paper. Students will choose a research area that interests them and will add to their professional development. The study will mostly be formulated through secondary research (existing data). However, they will have the opportunity to design a primary research methodology appropriate to their topic.
2. Destination and Tourism Management Destination Management is a core component of the tourism industry and as such requires broad knowledge of a particular area, its strengths and weaknesses and how it can be promoted to an increasingly discerning tourist audience. This module considers Tourism Destinations and management efforts, that recognises and responds to the motivations of potential visitors, the characteristics of travel industry partners, and the needs and concerns of destination stakeholders. In order to remain successful, destinations need to maintain and develop their practices through an approach that embraces a range of tactical devices. Managing a destination also requires understanding of the Tourism Area Life Cycle (TALC) which can be pivotal in identifying when a destination may be entering periods of financial uncertainty. This module takes a holistic overview of the challenges that managers face today, tomorrow and the longer term future of destinations.
3. Finance for the Hospitality Industry At the end of the Finance for Hospitality Industry module, the students will have the knowledge to control and manage the main financial aspects of a hotel.

It is recognised within the hospitality industry that finance and accounting is paramount to the overall success of any hospitality business. Hotels and resorts continue to be developed very rapidly. A property manager today needs more knowledge than ever before, especially in finance where bottom line focus is the prime responsibility of senior management.

Managerial accounting focuses upon those aspects of accounting which concern hospitality managers most. These aspects include internal financial statements, budgeting, internal controls and costs.

4. Food and Beverage Management The aim of this module is to allow learners to have the knowledge and understanding of the elements required, to become a successful food and beverage manager within the hospitality industry.

Whilst this course is theoretical in nature, the students have the opportunity to put their skills into practice within the F&B areas of the school. This will enable students to develop supervisory skills and supervise within a team. This is seen as an essential element of becoming a successful F&B manager.

5. Hotel and Resort Management This module will enable students to describe the complexities that are involved in the design and development of a new resort, and will enable the student to enhance their knowledge of the 5-star hotel and resort industry.
6. Managing Room Division The aim is to investigate the role of the rooms division within the management of a hospitality operation. This unit examines the operational elements that comprise the front office, guest services and management of distribution channels, revenue management and the housekeeping department, and how these are deployed by management to maximise both occupancy and rooms revenue. The unit provides the learner with an appreciation of the role of the Rooms Division as the ‘nerve centre’ of customer activity with network communication links with other departments.
7. Operations Management Operations Management within the hospitality industry is a dynamic process that requires individuals who can think and react quickly to changing situations and requirements on a daily, sometimes hourly basis. These operators and managers work across broad industrial portfolios, meaning that they cross departments, working units and sometimes diverse working groups to achieve the unitary aims of the organisation. As the challenges for the 21st century hotel and tourism operators increase particularly in financial terms, this module takes a close look at what it means to manage a sustainable operation and how all of the company assets are used to their best potentials.
8. Organisational Behaviour At the end of this module, students must be able to understand the behaviour of others and attempt to predict and influence it. An understanding of human behaviour is needed to establish and maintain productive working relationships both within the organisation (supervisors, peers and subordinates) and outside the organisation (customers, unions, suppliers and competitors). The applied focus of the course is to facilitate experiential learning of contemporary approaches to conflict resolution, communication, decision making, leadership, motivation, negotiation, power and politics within a team environment.
