The ICRT is growing at Leeds Met

Post by goodwinhj »

In the last 14 days, the ICRT has received approval for a new MSc in Responsible Hospitality Management, to be launched in September 2008. and has secured funding for four new academic posts (two Senior Lecturers and two Senior Research Fellows) for the ICRT and a full time senior administrator. This provides a firm basis for continuing to build the ICRT. At Leeds Metropolitan University we have found a worthy home in an institution which shares our commitment to responsible business and sustainable development.
