What is Management?

Management is getting work done through other people. Managers perform a wide range of workplace activities, from establishing organization goals and ensuring progress towards those goals to organizing when and how activities and resources should be grouped together. Managers are asked to solve challenging workplace problems, often with limited human and financial resources. The Management major prepares students to design rewards for improved performance, set goals that motivate workers, and build an environment to create and sustain a competitive advantage.


A Bachelor of Science in Management with an emphasis in hospitality management is designed to provide students with a strong foundation in management principles and practices, with a focus on the hospitality industry. Students will also learn about leadership and organizational behavior, financial management, and strategic planning. This program includes opportunities for internships and hands-on experience, as well as preparation for industry certifications.

Graduates of this program will be prepared for careers in a variety of hospitality and tourism industries, such as hotels, resorts, restaurants, event planning, and travel agencies. Pursuing a Management degree with an emphasis in Hospitality Management is ideal for individuals who are passionate about the hospitality industry, enjoy working with people, and are interested in a dynamic and fast-paced career.
