Faculty in this department deliver high-quality education in hospitality management, supported by a progressive series of practical, applied and experiential learning opportunities that take place in one of the world’s premier tourist destinations. Students learn to be guest focused, ethical, innovative, globally aware and computer fluent. They’re also trained to be effective communicators, able to excel in the many facets of this industry. Students who major in this field can focus their coursework in hotel and resort management, food service management or events management. In addition, they can emphasize sales and marketing, human resource management or general management.
Many students choose to minor in hospitality and tourism management to gain industry-specific knowledge and experience. With a minor in hospitality and tourism management, students majoring in economics, accounting or another program outside of the School of Business will gain insight and possible career opportunities in the $4.5 trillion worldwide industry.
A concentration in hospitality and tourism management, coupled with a business administration major, provides students with a keener insight into the industry and opens the door for a career in an exciting, high-growth field.
