What’s it like to do a PhD in Hospitality?
As a research area, Hospitality is closely related to subjects such as Tourism and Event Management. Doing a PhD in Hospitality means that you can focus more closely on particular aspects of the visitor economy, including:
- Cruise ships
- Hotel industry
- International tourism
- Public relations
- Sharing economy
You’ll be given the opportunity to make use of a range of quantitative and qualitative research methodologies during your PhD, which will culminate in a lengthy dissertation that discusses and analyses your findings.
The nature of Hospitality as a subject means that there will be plenty of chances to apply your research in an interdisciplinary manner, with ample crossover between Business, Management, Heritage Studies and Tourism.
