Module Synopsis

  1. Management Research Report » This module should be studied concurrently with other Advanced Diploma Modules over the same period. It offers the opportunity for students to carry out a research report that involves analysing and interpreting data and making recommendations for future action. It has a secondary aim of developing independent research and study skills that students will require when following a further period of study or working in the industry.

  2. Human Resource Management » The aim of this module is to provide a foundation in both the knowledge and skills of Human Resource Management required by managers in the hospitality industry. The module recognises that management of human resources at all levels can critically affect the efficiency and effectiveness of an organisation.

  3. Management Accounting » This module aims to provide students with an understanding of the financial and accounting records used in the Hospitality and Tourism Industry, and the ways these can aid effective managerial decision-making. It gives detailed additional coverage on Sales & Cash Budgeting, Marginal Costing and Final Accounts for internal use. The course content should follow on from the material in Fin, allowing students to calculate marginal costings and formulate decisions from such material. It gives students the ability to interpret accounting information and maximise the use of computing in management accounting.

  4. Strategic Management » The Hospitality Industry faces new and complex changes during the 21st century. The aim of this module is to make students aware of the strategic planning process and its impact on the Hospitality Industry. Students will gain a thorough understanding of Hospitality policy-making within global, international and national contexts and create an ability to develop and apply innovative strategic planning approaches in response to corporate policies. Students will gain sense and imagination in the relationship between policy and practice and they will be able to anticipate and develop monitoring mechanisms that evaluate policy and business responses to issues and trends, and the use of that information in strategic planning. Students will learn how to explore the necessary tools, procedures and competencies needed to analyse, define, plan and manage change in an international context.

  5. Sustainable Tourism and Destination Management » The aim of this module is to encourage students to reflect on some of the issues raised at Diploma level about tourism destinations and how they can be developed. It will also show the value of an integrated approach and will provide students with a holistic understanding of how to manage a tourism destination and use sustainable tourism methods.

  6. Tour Operations » Students will be given the opportunity to investigate the Tour Operations sector of the travel and tourism industry, including the different types of operator, their products and services, the scale of the sector and how it has been affected by trends and developments. Students will also look at distribution methods used by tour operators to sell holidays, including the traditional use of travel agencies and the emergence of methods such as the internet and television.

Similarly, CTH Advanced Diploma students may enter onto their chosen degree at final year level. The Examinations are conducted five times a year, in January, March, June, September and November.
