Hospitality Business Management
One of only three universities in the world boasting EPAS accreditation for our Hospitality Business Management programmes, automatic Institute of Hospitality membership and the ability to achieve a sandwich degree in three years rather than four are just some of the reasons why our courses are so attractive.
We offer a ‘live’ managerial experience at all levels of study which equips our graduates for success in employment. Work experience is integral to our courses and students have the option of a one year UK or overseas placement or work experience during the semester. Our students also have the opportunity to achieve an additional food safety qualification.
Our impressive facilities provide an active experimentation space where students can put theory into practice. This includes production kitchens, restaurant facilities and the latest technology such as MICROS/EPOS.
Our industry partners
We have a well-developed network of partner organisations including big names such as Hilton, Marriot International and Compass. Our partners provide placements, live projects, sponsorship, guest lectures and research collaboration. This is extended further by a strong relationship with our alumni who offer intergenerational mentoring.
Our lecturers come from industry and are research active ensuring they stay up-to-date with key developments in the profession, with particular interests in
- revenue and performance management
- big data in hospitality management
- entrepreneurship and family business
- work and lifestyle migration

- wine and culinary innovations
