The aim of the subject is to provide an opportunity for students to understand, apply and evaluate strategic analysis for tourism and hospitality organisations and destinations. Special emphasis will be placed on the application of strategic management concepts for decision making in the hospitality and tourism environment. Critical success factors will be developed through using particular tourism and hospitality organisations and destinations. Students will be able to evaluate strategies, their appropriateness and the issues that will determine whether or not they are successful. Students are expected to read widely around the subject.
