Hospitality Management, B.S.

What if your office window looked out over a white sandy beach peppered with cabanas, while waves of clear blue water crashed to shore? But when you leave your office and enter a grand ballroom, your real job begins. For you, this is where the magic happens!

As the special events manager of the island resort, you are responsible for orchestrating an evening that is no less than spectacular, including exceptional food, stunning décor, intoxicating music and impeccable service.

And that's only one of hundreds of career possibilities with a degree in hospitality management. It doesn't matter whether you would like to pursue a career in a hotel, restaurant, resort or private club. Regardless of the setting, you will be well prepared with the fundamentals of business ⎯ accounting, economics, business law, communications and computer applications.

All hospitality majors receive a similar range of operational and management instruction. The combination of two required internship experiences and exciting electives will allow you to tailor your learning to a specific setting. Industry professionals and program faculty will prepare you with expert industry insights so that you are well prepared for anything that comes your way. The sky's the limit!
