Hospitality Management Major/International Hospitality Management Concentration (B.S.)

Links and Contacts

You consider yourself a citizen of the world, enjoyed different cultures and can see yourself traveling and even perhaps working abroad. If so, then the International Hospitality Management concentration could be an option for you!

This concentration will develop your global awareness through a selection of international business and intercultural courses. You will gain basic foreign language skills through completing one full year of language instruction and, in addition, you are required to complete a minimum of one semester of study abroad to immerse yourself in a different culture.

In our global economy, international awareness, respect for other cultures and an understanding of your guest's needs are important attributes when taking on a leadership role in hospitality. These attributes will form a solid foundation for your future career and will set you apart from your peers.
