Graduate

The Master of Science (M.S.) in Hospitality Management is a two-year course of study designed for individuals who seek business leadership opportunities in the hospitality industry or a career in academia. The program will provide participants innovative ideas and advanced management skills to lead the industry. Specifically, the program will enable them to broaden their knowledge of the industry building on their strengths and interests to promote professional growth and help prepare those who wish to pursue doctoral programs thereafter.
