Preparing for a career in Hospitality Management
All of our HM program faculty came from the hospitality industry and recognize the value of experiential learning. We get you out of the classroom and into real-life environments.
Our HM faculty focuses more on developing critical thinking skills through experiential learning and less on memorization of facts and figures. Internships, work practicums, field trips, team-based projects, presentations, and role playing provide opportunities for you to demonstrate your understanding of curriculum content.
The Aspen Grille is an on-campus restaurant and learning laboratory for HM students. Through the course RRM 340, students gain experience in all aspects of restaurant operations and have the opportunity to interact with campus and community patrons.
