The Associate of Science in Hotel Management prepares students for management positions in hotels and resorts around the world.
Specialized classes will teach students the skills needed to manage multi-faceted hotel operations, while general education classes such as Composition, Supervision, Marketing, and Concept Development will develop students’ critical thinking, problem-solving skills, and communication abilities.
Courses like Front Office Management, Housekeeping, Introduction to Food and Beverage, and Meeting Planning equip students with relevant industry knowledge and the managerial and administrative skills required to succeed in the growing hospitality field. Students also gain practical experience through on-the-job training in hotels and resorts.
Upon successful completion of the associate degree program, students may seek entry-level positions in hotels, restaurants, convention facilities, and resorts. Possible positions include assistant front office manager, assistant food and beverage manager, housekeeping manager, event planner, and sales representative.
