Career opportunities

Hospitality and tourism are two of the largest and fastest growing sectors of the global economy and it is reported that these sectors are vital contributors to employment and economic growth in both, advanced and emerging economies. In the UK alone, the tourism industry generates £127 billion of direct business for the economy each year, which equates to around 9% of GDP. It is one of the biggest employers, with over 200,000 businesses providing 4.4% of all employment (Visit Britain 2018).

Within Britain’s overall tourism industry, London is the strongest destination, also recognised as the global capital of tourism. In 2017, it attracted over 19 million visitors and continues to create a wide range of opportunities for Coventry University London student placements and internships.

The rapid development and constant evolution of the hospitality and tourism industries highlights the need for talented leaders, capable of thinking strategically. They will need to be able to anticipate developments in the traditional tourism business models and operate effectively within a fast-moving global environment.

Due to the strategic and transferable nature of many of your modules, such as Finance, Human Resource Management, Strategic Management and Events and Project management), you’ll be well-equipped to seek roles in a wide range of sectors.
