Hospitality management is a field that focuses on all aspects of hospitality operations, including hotels, restaurants, cruise ships, amusement parks, country clubs and convention centers.
The management of these establishments can be challenging, as managers need to be flexible enough to anticipate and meet a wide variety of needs. They must also handle tasks such as training employees, handling staff, setting standards and budgeting.
The Hospitality Management Program prepares students to take on managerial positions immediately, familiarizing them with everything from payment processing systems to contingency planning. Individuals who can think quickly on their feet and enjoy working with the public will excel in this dynamic field. People with training in hospitality management can often enter the job market quickly and command competitive salaries.
