Hospitality Management - BS

Program Contact: Jennifer Forney

You want to be the boss but you don’t want to sit behind a desk all day, right? You want to make good money but also have fun.

How about the excitement of working at a beach or ski resort? The action of a large hotel or the adventure of a cruise ship?  These are just a few of the possibilities open to you in the area of hospitality management.

In our program, you’ll start by learning the basics of the industry. Then, you’ll go beyond the classroom and into the “real world” of hospitality management. Your education will include 800 hours of hands-on experience, which you may get nearby at places like Holiday Valley Ski Resort, or Glendorn, a fancy, (and we mean really fancy) resort near campus.  Or not so nearby at world-famous attractions like Disney.
