Nowadays, hotels are dynamic, engaging and interactive and are looking for trained talent like you to join their teams!

Through completion of this major, you will have the depth of hotel operations, as it exposes you to leadership, revenue management and the fiscal responsibility of hotel processes and procedures.

Upon completion of the degree, you will have the necessary global business knowledge to function in important hotel managerial roles, as hotels are the equivalent of a small corporation. Find yourself as the CEO of your own hotel, touching upon multiple components of hospitality service such as sales and marketing, food and beverage, human resources, accounting, and rooms.

You will explore the exciting aspects of operations in a real-world environment through required internships at some of the world’s top hotel brands, such as Intercontinental, Hyatt, Marriott, Hilton and Four Seasons.

When studying abroad, you can take advantage of the unique opportunity to receive a Swiss Hotel Management Diploma from the Les Roches School of International Hotel Management in conjunction with the Endicott Bachelor degree.

These dual credentials will give you a unique competitive advantage and open many international opportunities for employment.
