Hospitality and Tourism Management MSc
I met a UCB representative at a university fair in Warsaw, Poland. After speaking to them, I conducted my own research and discovered that UCB is one of the best for studying hospitality and tourism. I also really liked everything I read about Birmingham.
I loved everything about my course. The lecturers were very supportive, open-minded and knew how to motivate students. My modules had references to current travel trends and involved lots of projects that enabled me to develop hands-on skills. There are a lot of study facilities and opportunities for me to take advantage of such as the library, the resource centre and the option to learn another language alongside my course. My course involved residential visits around the UK and overseas from Cardiff to Lisbon.
I now work in Traveller Services in the Carlson Wagonlit Travel in Warsaw, Poland. They are THE leader in business travel management. I began as a support consultant and have since worked my way up to section manager, where I now manage a team of eight located IN Warsaw and Paris, France.
Working in the tourism industry means no two days are the same. Each day brings new knowledge and possibilities – and I love it! It’s very motivating to work in such a dynamic, fast-paced industry.
If you are interested in looking into the tourism or hospitality industry, I would strongly recommend UCB. The lecturers are very dedicated and passionate about the sector. Studying at UCB is a great start to your career.
