Why Tourism Management?

The MSc in Tourism Management is designed for both students that want to continue their postgraduate studies, and for working professionals that seek a career change and/or simply seek to add value to their skills and knowledge through a distinctive programme.
This programme is unique in nature as it combines subjects developed in the UK which are localized for the GCC and Qatar context. You will gain a clear understanding of topics such as Theoretical Challenges, Strategic Directions, Research Methods, and Sustainability while getting the chance to connect with experts and specialized academics in these fields.
This innovative programme is designed to accommodate a rapidly evolving international industry. Globally, Tourism has become one of the main sectors for the economy. Its financial value and contribution to employment make it a fundamental component of the world economy. For Qatar, tourism is an important pillar of the ‘Qatar National Vision 2030’, and the country aims to establish Qatar as a world-leading destination by welcoming more than six million visitors a year by 2030. To achieve this, the country requires industry leaders to ensure Qatar becomes the visionary tourism destination of the future.
Through creative thinking and independent learning, we aim to make our students the future leaders this industry needs. The MSc in Tourism Management guarantees our graduates will possess the skills required for success in the Tourism industry.
