Dedman School of Hospitality / Academic Programs
The Major in Hospitality Management prepares students for the wide variety of career opportunities available to hospitality managers because of the intricacy of the industry. For instance, a hotel chain (lodging management) or a golf club (club management) may include a restaurant or lounge (food and beverage management) at their locations. Careers are available for hospitality management graduates in many industry areas:
Hotels and lodging, restaurants and food service, beverage and bar, private clubs and golf course, sports and entertainment centers, attractions, travel and tourism, meeting and event planning, casinos and cruise ships, senior living services.
The private club and golf resort industries are experiencing tremendous international growth, creating a demand for executives with business skills and knowledge to manage organizations in multi-cultural environments in the U.S. and abroad. If you are a business-minded individual with a passion for international travel, the Global Club Management major at the Dedman School of Hospitality is your ticket to an exciting and lucrative career.
This new program begins Spring 2015. For more information, contact Don Farr at firstname.lastname@example.org or (850) 228-6389.
Beginning Spring 2014, the Dedman School of Hospitality will no longer accept students into the major in PGA Golf Management. We will be refocusing on the management of global clubs and resorts.
The Hospitality Management minor offers students the opportunity to select a program of study that examines the many facets of the hospitality industry. The interdisciplinary nature of the program allows students to experience basic hospitality & tourism, management of a service organization, international wine, food, travel and culture, events management, club management, etc.
