Students can specialize their knowledge through work experience and/or choosing a minor to add value to their degree.

      We provide a quality education at the intersection of service management and analytics, through offering courses in guest service management, revenue management, and strategic analytics in hospitality. In this age of Big Data, the prospective program will equip students with the skills to analyze and interpret how external and internal factors influence decision making in hospitality enterprises, and thereby impact financial performance.
