Hospitality Management Major/Senior Community Management Concentration (B.S.)

Links and Contacts

People live longer and healthier than ever before. Nowadays, retirement communities are vibrant centers of active and engaging seniors, who plan activities, social trips, insist on outstanding a la carte dining facilities and amenities you expect at luxury hotels. These people require a standard of living that reflects their modern lifestyles and expectations.

When looking at Senior Living Communities, they contain three important aspects of the hospitality industry: lodging, foodservice and entertainment. Managers of these properties must understand the fundamentals of hospitality along with the issues involved when people live in a group setting.

This concentration explores the competencies required to be a successful manager of a senior living community. Topics such as nutrition, psychology, governmental regulations, design considerations, event planning, financing options and marketing will be covered in relation to senior communities.
