HOTEL RESTAURANT MANAGEMENT
The hospitality industry, one of the nation's leading employers, is continually looking for well-qualified managers. Students entering the curriculum are provided with the skills and knowledge necessary for management positions in hotels, restaurants, country clubs, catering, sales, fine dining and quick service.
The program is designed to emphasize strategies in supervision, marketing, sanitation, food, beverage, labor cost controls and management. Laboratory courses (on-campus fine dining restaurant) are scheduled for students to actively participate in actual operation. An eight-week internship in the hospitality industry concludes the program providing students with a management-oriented experience.
Upon graduation, students are prepared to enter the job market or transfer to a four-year program. Transfer agreements are in place with many colleges. These include Niagara University, Rochester Institute of Technology, University of Nevada at Las Vegas, Florida International University, Paul Smith's College and Buffalo State College, just to mention a few.
