This Hospitality MBA at Queen Margaret University offers real-life experiences and engagement with the industry. We have a strong belief and desire to take you out of the traditional classroom setting to experience and explore the sector for yourself. For example, current students were overnight guests at a five star hotel where they were able to discuss the history, operations and challenges with the owner.

About

The Hospitality course is offered by Queen Margaret University.

  • There is a practical project instead of a dissertation. Students are challenged to research, plan, manage and evaluate a project in conjunction with an external business or organisation, allowing them to develop career-enhancing skills, confidence and opportunities.
  • Reflecting contemporary working practice, our teaching and assessment takes a strong group and team focus.
  • Class sizes are beneficially small: it enables students to work closely with fellow students from diverse backgrounds and allows lecturers to develop strong relationships with the students. The smaller cohort of students also allows for participation in regular visits and events.

Within the hospitality sector, the need for high performing groups and teams is of particular importance. The course takes a clear and consistent focus on team and project dynamics and challenges you to take on different types of roles in delivering objectives. You will study a range of business and hospitality modules and complete a project with a hospitality organisation

Programme Structure

Modules:
  • International Marketing
  • Human Resource Management
  • Directing Strategy for Value Creation
  • Financial Management
  • Business Economics.

All MBA students will then take three further modules in their specific area, for example:
Family Business Insight (FASE)/ International Tourism Management (Tourism)/ Operations and Supply Chain.

Management (General MBA)/ Global Issues and Challenges for Hospitality Managers (Hospitality)
You will also complete a 60 credit project (Business Impact and Practice) focused towards your specialism in partnership with an external organisation. This is your opportunity to discover, propose, plan, lead and deliver an externally driven project, whilst developing your skills of reflective practice and personal development planning.

The modules listed here are correct at the time of posting (July 16), but are subject to change. In the event that modules have to change, QMU will seek to use reasonable endeavours to ensure that there is no detrimental impact to students.
