MA International Tourism and Aviation Management with Internship

UWL University of West London
Campus Full time 18 months September 2017 United Kingdom London

The Master's programme in International Tourism and Aviation Management seeks to prepare aspiring individuals for a managerial career within either the tourism and aviation industry. [+]

MA Degrees in Engineering & Technology. MA International Tourism and Aviation Management with Internship The Master's programme in International Tourism and Aviation Management seeks to prepare aspiring individuals for a managerial career within either the tourism and aviation industry. For existing practitioners, it offers the opportunity to develop and redefine knowledge and assess trends and changing management practices within their industry. It is offered as a one year full-time and two year part-time course. The Internship Course seeks to provide the same rigorous and challenging programme of professional practice as the MA but has the added advantage of including a 24 week paid internship incorporated into the period of study. This makes it ideal for students seeking to add a practical dimension to their studies and understand the demands of workplace supervision and management. Internship opportunities exist throughout the tourism and aviation industries both within the UK and overseas. The internship process is co-ordinated by the University’s own dedicated internship team and draws upon contacts with over three thousand employers. The MA programme is essentially global in perspective drawing upon international case study material. In adopting a generic business and management approach to the study of tourism and aviation management the course seeks to avoid the excessive subject specialisation that characterises many of its competitors. In doing so it widens career opportunities and the possibility of movement between the two sectors. The key strength of the programme is its simple yet flexible structure. Employer engagement is assured with guest speakers drawn from industry and the use of ‘live client ’briefs. The programme is taught by a young but experienced team all with a background in either tourism and/or aviation management. Many of these staff are extensively published and are asked to speak at events and conferences throughout the world. The MA is taught in a dedicated learning environment within the university with elements of the programme sponsored by key industry players. The course has links with ‘sister programmes’ in Europe, Asia and North America allowing the opportunity for staff and student exchange. In addition, it is accredited by the Institute of Travel and Tourism. The programme is delivered in a Q.A.A. (UK Government Quality Assurance Agency) centre of excellence for tourism and aviation education. Field work, trips and visits are a feature of the course. [-]

MA Intelligence and Security Studies

Brunel University: College of Business, Arts and Social Sciences
Campus Full time Part time 12 - 30 months September 2017 United Kingdom Uxbridge + 1 more

Taught by the internationally respected scholars of the Brunel Centre for Intelligence and Security Studies, backed up where required by practitioner expertise, the MA in Intelligence and Security Studies offers a unique opportunity for practical, policy-oriented graduate study of intelligence issues applicable across the private and public sectors around the world. [+]

About the course Intelligence and security policy issues are now one of the fastest growing areas of academic and public concern, especially since '9/11' and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Today more than ever before national governments, international agencies and most major international corporations have an identified need for staff with a strong grasp of intelligence and security issues who can also demonstrate first-rate skills of research and assessment. Taught by the internationally respected scholars of the Brunel Centre for Intelligence and Security Studies, backed up where required by practitioner expertise, the MA in Intelligence and Security Studies offers a unique opportunity for practical, policy-oriented graduate study of intelligence issues applicable across the private and public sectors around the world. Attendance for lectures full-time: 2 days per week - for 24 weeks Attendance for lectures part-time: 1 day per week - for 24 weeks (in each of 2 years) Aims This course will be of value to individuals seeking to go into security-oriented careers in both the private and public sectors. It is suitable to individuals engaged in the security professions who seek further qualifications and professional enhancement. A distinctive feature of the course lies in its combining the rigorous study of intelligence and security policy studies with practical opportunities to develop intelligence skills through case studies and simulation exercises dealing with intelligence analysis. Special Features The Brunel Centre for Intelligence and Security Studies is Britain's first academic centre dedicated to intelligence scholarship and policy-analysis. It includes one of Britain's most innovative scholars in the field, Dr Philip H J Davies, as well Dr Kristian Gustafson (director of the MA programme), an expert on covert action and military intelligence doctrine. The newest member of staff is Mohamed Gaballa. An alumni of this course, he is a specialist in Structured Analytic Techniques, with a focus on Analysis of Competing Hypothesis. The former senior military imagery analyst, Geoff Oxlee, OBE, joined BCISS as an Honorary Fellow and completes the core team. Together, these scholars not only produce important original research, published worldwide, but actively contribute to the success of government and business in the UK. The Centre, though, is an inter-disciplinary endeavour, and includes participation from some of the leading Brunel University London academics in the fields of cryptography, computer networking, imagery, economics and even law. Many of these experts already assist our teaching. The centre also benefits from the assistance, from time to time, of various officials of Her Majesty’s Government. The degree, therefore, benefits from practitioner input and insight as well as instruction by leading international academics. Teaching and Assessment Assessment All modules are taught on the basis of lectures, seminars and directed reading. Additionally, the second term Case Studies course is a student-led seminar programme in which participants present detailed case studies and are peer reviewed on their presentation skills. The second term Analytical Simulation Exercise will involve students working in groups in a simulated joint, all-source intelligence assessment modelled on the actual joint assessment processes in the US and UK governments. Students are assessed on a mixture of individual and group work. Employability The MA in Intelligence and Security Studies (MAISS) provides solid transferable skills in analysis and drafting, skills whose applicability cuts across a wide range of public and private pursuits. Our students have had great success in seeking employment once they have completed their course. Many have come from, and then continue to work for, government agencies in the UK and abroad — we have taught police, military, and other government officials from the United States, Canada, Switzerland, Finland, Norway, Belgium, Turkey, Japan, Jordan, the Philippines, Brunei, Thailand, Indonesia, Korea, Botswana and several other nations beside. Within the UK, students with no service experience have gone on to work for the British Security Service, the Metropolitan Police Counter-Terrorism Centres, the Serious Organised Crime Agency, and other departments of government. Many students have noted to us that the innovative studies they undertook on our programme were important topics of discussion in their interviews. Those already in Government employment have successfully used their MAs to leverage promotion or commissioning. Students who have sought work in the private sector have likewise had success. Former MAISS students have gone to work for large banks conducting market analysis, to large oil-industry firms, to large consultancies such as McKinsey & Co, to specialist private analysis firms such as MS Risk and cyber security firm Digital Shadows. Indeed, MS Risk have had such success with our graduates that they have offered to fund a prize for the MAISS student who writes the best dissertation, annually. Overall, MAISS students have had a strong record of success in the years after their degrees. [-]

This might be in a traditional field of design such as graphic design, product design, fashion design, or interior design, for example. Other fields such as teaching, social science, humanities, curating, engineering, science and business are also considered practices and welcomed on the programme. Thematic studios and project-based learning You'll choose to situate yourself within one of six thematic Studios, each with a distinct identity: Cities & Urbanism Communication & Experience Fashions & Embodiment Innovation & Service Interaction & Technology Participation & Politics Your learning will centre around projects, which you'll investigate alongside fellow students, faculty and visiting experts. The Studios are spaces where we encourage you to materially experiment, question your practice, evolve new design languages and engage with contemporary discourses, with the aims of tackling the new contexts of consumption, production and possibility. Reconsider and reframe your practice This 15-month MA Design: Expanded Practice also includes the Extended Practice module undertaken in a professional setting such as work placement, field research, summer school or conference. This will support you in building a network and body of work that allows you to reconsider and reframe your professional practice. Is there work experience built into this programme? Why is the Masters 15 months long? Will there be a final degree show? Explore answers to some frequently asked questions about the approach of this programme. Entry requirements You should have (or expect to be awarded) an undergraduate degree of at least second class standard in a relevant/related subject. If you don't have a related undergraduate degree we also welcome those who have significant practical experience in a design-related field: you will be judged on the relevance of your previous work experience, and on your art and/or design work. We will also consider applicants who do not have a design-related background but who have engaged in research either in academia (as students or academics) or at work. We expect a high standard of achievement in design or other creative practice, and competencies in the use of equipment used to produce design work (IT and/or manufacture workshop skills). You need to present, in portfolio and at interview, evidence of evolved critical and creative thinking in design. Equivalent qualifications We accept a wide range of international qualifications.
