About this course
For international organisations such as the World Bank and the United Nations World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO), and also national ministries and regional development agencies, tourism is an important means of economic diversification, poverty reduction and socio-economic integration.
It offers a way to bring relative prosperity to a region through additional revenue streams and a raised public profile. UNWTO argue that developing countries in particular benefit from this process and make it their aim to facilitate it, all the while minimising the potentially negative impact on the environment and cultural integrity.
Our Tourism and International Development MSc aligns with the missions of UNWTO and focuses on the role of tourism as an agent of development and as a vehicle to sustainable change both at a micro and a macro level. We are an affiliate member of UNWTO, which informs our teaching and your learning.
