International Hotel & Tourism Management
Bachelor of Science (B.S.) Degree
The International Hotel & Tourism Management bachelor's degree program provides students with the opportunity to experience the broad nature of the hospitality and tourism industries on a global scale. Students prepare to enter international hospitality corporations, as well as tourism planning and marketing organizations, as entry-level managers or staff professionals.
Upon completion of the program, graduates are expected to demonstrate the ability to
- Apply technical skills in a hospitality-related environment.
- Demonstrate personal accountability and professionalism in a hospitality environment.
- Apply management skills in a simulated global hospitality-related business environment.
- Assess the international environment and apply creativity and critical thinking skills to solve challenges and make ethically sound decisions related to hospitality organizations.
- Identify and communicate a long-range vision and strategy for a hospitality organization within a global context.
Students spend one term abroad integrating their previous studies with new experiences and knowledge about different countries and cultures. The program exposes students to the principles and practices of international hospitality management, marketing, strategic planning, tourism, and financial and operational management for both lodging and food and beverage management. Three terms of study of another language are required for the degree.
The required study abroad and the language requirement provide students with a unique global perspective, as well as a competitive advantage when seeking employment with international hospitality organizations. By participating in a summer abroad, international internship or international exchange program a student may have a second international experience.
Applications for the program are accepted during a student’s freshman year through the International Hotel School. Preference is given to students who achieve a 3.20 GPA or higher during their freshman year. Selection is based upon academic performance, community and university service, industry experience, a personal interview, and professional and professorial recommendations. Once in the program, students must maintain a minimum GPA of 2.85. Contact The Hospitality College for more details.
