Our name says “Hotel and Restaurant,” but we are so much more! We are a specialized business degree program in hospitality, offering undergraduate, graduate and doctoral degrees in hotel and restaurant management, hospitality management, global hospitality business and hospitality administration, respectively, as well as a minor in beverage management and marketing. Our graduates realize incredible career opportunities around the globe in lodging, restaurants, catering and events, casino, spa and club management, food safety, conference services, hospitality technology, sports and entertainment venues, marketing and social media, tourism, revenue management, wine and spirits distribution – and these are just a few specialized areas of hospitality. A huge part of our industry is food & beverage, so our students spend quality time in chef coats learning basic cooking, food safety and knife skills. Our focus is always on management, not what’s on the menu! Still, many aspiring chefs come here to learn about the business and operational side of the restaurant industry either before or after they complete a culinary program. Here, we prepare the hospitality leaders of tomorrow. And with our specialized team of counselors in our Career Development office, we are ready and willing to help you navigate this global industry through internships and career fairs where we bring top hospitality employers to you.

Hospitality is the world’s No. 1 employer. We ARE hospitality. We will help you find your place in our industry!
