Today’s hospitality industry is booming, and more hotel and food management positions are becoming available across the nation! The demand for trained and proficient workers in hospitality management is steadily rising, and Grand Canyon University is a great choice for any student looking to earn their hospitality management degree! Here is a quick overview of the hospitality program and the different skills that you will learn:
As students progress through this hospitality management degree program, they learn a variety of business and management skills. These skills are meant to prepare them for the business roles and responsibilities that exist within the hospitality industry, such as accounting, finance, marketing and even operations. Students are also exposed to hospitality management-specific courses that include event planning, revenue generation and hotel and restaurant management. All of these skills and course topics equip each individual for the fun and fast-paced lifestyle that exists within this industry.
There are many employment opportunities that are available within the hospitality management field. Throughout this program, GCU offers hands-on hospitality experience through the university’s hotel, golf course and restaurant. This direct experience gives each student a competitive edge as they build their resume.
With a hospitality management degree, graduates can seek careers such as restaurant manager or event coordinator. There are also a few unique jobs that require the same skills as hospitality management, but are outside of the typical hotel and restaurant setting. For example, a casino property general manager oversees the operations of a casino while also ensuring that processes are running smoothly within the business.
