The hospitality industry is the number one employer in Atlantic County. This degree prepares students for management careers in hospitality including hotels, restaurants, casinos, casino hotels, private clubs and travel agencies. In addition to hotel and food and beverage management courses, students are exposed to a variety of courses in business administration, such as Financial Accounting, Principles of Management and Human Resources Management. In their final semester, students are required to complete a mandatory 135-hour internship in a hospitality-related organization.
Hospitality classes are scheduled traditionally, for those students most comfortable in a classroom learning environment, and online, for those students who are self-disciplined and appreciate the flexibility that distance education offers.
