MA Luxury Hospitality Management with Internship

Campus Full time 18 months September 2017 United Kingdom London

A political, financial and cultural magnet for the discerning traveller, London boasts globally recognised hotels and restaurants that have become prominent landmarks in the city’s landscape, often with decades-long traditions. [+]

MA Luxury Hospitality Management with Internship According to the World Luxury Index™ London is one of the fastest growing destinations (followed by Dubai and Paris) for consumers who wish to experience luxury hospitality services in the wide range of luxury hotels and fine dining restaurants the city has to offer. A political, financial and cultural magnet for the discerning traveller, London boasts globally recognised hotels and restaurants that have become prominent landmarks in the city’s landscape, often with decades-long traditions. The luxury sector, prior to the Global Financial Crisis (G.F.C.) was described as a closed system that did not value continuous collaboration and cooperation with their consumers. The focus was often on the delivery of consistent (often regimented) products and services of the highest quality as efficiently as possible. In contrast, post-GFC luxury businesses are said to be more open, and more self-reflexive, on a journey of continuous discovery for what best suits the needs of customers. This change has been a result of new luxury consumers, often referred to as the ‘discerning affluent’ as well as of the changing expectations of the old guard of wealthy customers. In addition, newly affluent consumers in emerging markets such as China, Russia, Brazil and India are said to crave a taste of what is the latest western edginess. The luxury hospitality sector is now all about the business of designing memorable and meaningful experiences through delivering experience-centric services. Given that the luxury sector is the fastest growing sector of the $6 trillion... [-]

Information systems (IS) today are large, complex, varied in form and distributed, serving different types of people who use a variety of devices to access information. Specialists who recognise diverse business needs, and have a systematic approach to understanding the impact of technology on organisations, are essential to the success of any IS/IT strategy. Equal in importance to the architectures of systems and the supporting technologies, is the management and delivery of content, whether in the form of data, documents, images and sound. Increasingly, the fundamental systems comprise digital architectures and networks which then embody and enable the distribution of digital content. Developed information systems are in reality socio-technical systems incorporating people, technologies and content. The information systems specialist becomes a more broadly based information professional as they extend their range and scope of operations towards the end users and their environments. Providing services to users and people at large and ensuring information resources deliver value is equally a part of the wider world of information systems. This course builds on typical undergraduate computing courses, developing new knowledge and skills in areas critical to the introduction and success of modern information systems for enterprises. The course also provides a route for people with other backgrounds and experience to engage with the world of information systems. It helps you gain a full understanding of how information systems are designed and constructed, and of the impact of technology and its integration into an organisation. It will also give you the skills you... [-]
