Students of the AACSB accredited Wasatch Resort Management Program (WARM) study hospitality management at Utah Valley University’s (UVU) beautiful Wasatch Campus while earning internship credit working in the exciting resort industry of the Park City area.


Most students will qualify for per-semester tuition reimbursement of $1000.


Students studying in the Wasatch Resort Management Program will complete the Hotel track of the existing Bachelor’s in Hospitality Management Degree from UVU. Students can also simultaneously earn their minor in event planning.


To foster steady work relationships with our resort and hotel partners, students will advance as a group with their peers through their Junior and Senior year. (15-25 students per cohort.)
