B.S. Hospitality Management Degree Online Program Description

The online Hospitality Management Degree Program is an extension of the on-campus academic experience, sharing the same policies, faculty, and student activities. It is grounded in day-to-day teaching and leadership practice and is geared at individuals who have a need for higher education, for those who struggle to maintain a work-life balance while holding full-time jobs or who because of the dictates of their lives are unable to attend classes as a full-time student. The online degree will enable individuals to apply what they learn, as they learn, work with peers facing similar challenges and take away real-world solutions, inspiration, and the support of an engaged community. The program promotes active, team-based learning that supports collaboration and sharing. The Bachelor of Science in Hospitality Management is designed to produce individuals solidly grounded in business administration, with specific sensitivities and skills in application to administration of hotels, restaurants and travel/tourism management entities. The program is accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Programs in Hospitality Administration (ACPHA) 1993. To that end the vertical curriculum is a replica of the face to face program.
