The Hospitality program is a blend of multiple disciplines into a certificate degree that provides a solid introduction into the exciting opportunities available in the hospitality industry. The hospitality student will explore the financial, marketing, management, communication, customer service and technical skills necessary for success in the industry.
Students will need additional outside work experience in order to qualify for the NRA Manage First Certificate, which is a practical hands on hospitality management program developed by the National Restaurant Association. Upon completion of the certificate, the student will be appropriately prepared for an entry level management position. Career opportunities will include working in food and beverage operations, catering operations, and wineries.
There are a number of career outcomes from this certification. You can expect to start at entry level management (assistant manager, crew leader, management trainee, etc.) depending on a variety of factors such as previous work experience. See some of the possible careers below:
