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.

An eight-week internship in the hospitality industry concludes the program providing students with a management-oriented experience.
