The Hospitality Management (HM) program helps prepare students for management careers in hotels, restaurants, resorts, casinos, convention centers, health care and corporate dining facilities, educational institutions, and other commercial and non-commercial settings. Students gain a general education background, take courses in HM and related areas and earn 1,000 hours of work experience.

Hospitality Management helps prepare students for management positions in any segment of the hospitality industry and is tailored to each student’s need and interests.

All students will gain the analytical, interpersonal, and organizational skills they will need in order to become successful hospitality professionals. They can also choose courses that will allow them to continue pursuing a general emphasis in hospitality, or they may choose a sequence of courses that offer a specific emphasis in restaurant management, hotel management, or institutional management. Students may also pursue a concentration in areas such as financial management, human resource management, marketing, or hospitality management information systems.
