School of Hospitality Management
Hotel Management Major
From luxurious resorts in Vegas to stunning bed and breakfasts on Tahiti, hotels are continuously re-inventing themselves to attract technologically savvy guests, sophisticated business travelers and environmentally conscious tourists. Nowadays, hotels are dynamic, engaging and interactive and are looking for trained talent like you to join their teams!
Through completion of this major, you will have both the breadth of hospitality and the depth of hotel operations, as it exposes you to revenue management and the fiscal reality and responsibility of hotel processes and procedures. You will be able to explore the functional areas of hotels by having the opportunity to go beyond the scope of the core hospitality business curriculum. Hotels are the equivalent of a small corporation, touching upon multiple components of hospitality service such as sales and marketing, human resources, accounting, food and beverage and rooms.
Matriculated students would be advised to seek internships in different hotel departments applicable to their career paths. Les Roches is the preferred study abroad option, where you receive the Swiss Hotel Management Diploma from Les Roches in conjunction with the Endicott Bachelor degree. These two credentials will give you a unique competitive advantage in the workforce. You will be enrolled in classes such as:
- Rooms Division Management
- Food and Beverage Management
- Convention Sales And Service
- Hotel Revenue Management
- Hospitality Facilities Design
Upon completion of the degree, you will have the necessary global business knowledge to function in important hotel managerial roles, as you work your way up in the hotel. Examples of current graduate positions include:
- Front Desk Agent, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts Boston, USA
- Outlets Manager, Hilton Hartford Hotel, USA
- Catering Sales Manager, Marriott Boston Newton, USA
- Assistant Front Office Manager, XV Beacon, USA
