Hospitality Management

Why a Certificate in Hospitality Management?

This Certificate program develops skills needed for the hospitality and tourism industry and provides students with the knowledge and practical experience in the major areas of management and operation including: accounting; customer service; marketing/sales; and hotel management/operation. Graduates prepare for entry-level, professional careers involving business support for restaurants, hotels, resorts, casinos, and other hospitality and tourism organizations.  The certificate option is two semesters with a third semester dedicated to a hospitality-related internship to allow extensive hands-on learning in the industry.  If students wish to expand their education beyond a CAS, the program also allows seamless transition into the AAS in Food Service Management.
