Course Details:

Hospitality Management encompasses the vibrant and varied worlds of hotel, restaurant and resort management and more. Graduates find employment in hotels, casinos, restaurants, conventions and special events management companies. This major delves into international hotel operations management, technological applications in hospitality management and large-scale services management as well as small business operations. As the hotel and hospitality industry moves increasingly from a skill-based to a knowledge-based industry, higher learning has become increasingly critical to opening career doors and helping managers to be fully attuned to the culture, services and competitive aspects of the sector.
