Course Overview

Currently, tourism and hospitality comprise the world’s largest trade and contributes largely to world economies. In total, nearly 266 million jobs are supported by the tourism and hospitality sectors (World Travel and Tourism Council, 2014). The sustained growth of these sectors together with their ability to generate high levels of employment continues to prove their importance and value for economic development and job creation. Forecasts suggest great potential for growth of tourism and hospitality for rising developing economies such as the ones in Eastern Africa. However, for these economies to tap into this highly competitive industry there is a need to improve the standards of service delivery. In addition, the staffs who handle guests must be trained to acquire appropriate competencies and attitudes in hospitality management. This Master of Hospitality Management programme, therefore aims at producing highly trained inter-disciplinary oriented professionals with diverse knowledge and competencies in all aspects of hospitality, and in particular hospitality marketing, financial, food and beverage and human resource management. The programme is designed to enable students to enhance the management competencies acquired at undergraduate level and develop strategic thinking, conceptual, analytical and industry-oriented managerial skills. The programme will enable students to increase their prospects for middle and senior management and leadership roles in the hospitality industry.
