The Hospitality Management program prepares graduates for employment in one of the fastest growing segments of the nation’s economy. The additions of several new convention centers in the state have dramatically increased the need for hotel and restaurant facilities. Students are marketable in a wide range of hospitality and tourism areas such as: hotel, resort, and motel management; event planning; restaurant and institutional food service; and a number of other areas such as cruise ship management, amusement park management, convention and visitor facilities, and gaming facilities.

The Hospitality Management program in the Woodbury School of Business offers a Bachelor of Science degree in Hospitality Management, as well as a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management, with an Emphasis in Hospitality Management. Associate in Science and Associate in Applied Science degrees are also offered.

The Bachelor of Science in Hospitality Management degree offers the possibility for a student to choose one of four specializations: General Operations; Revenue Management; Food and Beverage Management (designed mainly for Culinary Arts AAS graduates); and Foreign Language Track (which provides 12-15 hours of language credit).

*See Culinary Arts Institute section of this catalog for program.
