The hospitality and tourism industry is dynamic and growing, providing a number of opportunities for those who enjoy working with people and have a strong business background. A broad range of careers are available in such businesses as hotels and resorts; spa and wellness centers; recreation, leisure, and sports; tourism; gaming services; airlines; convention centers; and restaurants and food services. Lodging chains, in particular, often seek college graduates to fill management-track positions. The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts job growth through a wide range of industries in this field, through 2014.

Complementary business course work covers marketing, accounting, human resource management, business, and law. Students will be prepared for entry-level managerial positions leading to career opportunities in front office and sales management, food and beverage management, and more.
