As a hospitality management major, you will gain the skills, knowledge, and experience to work in this exciting and rapidly growing field. You’ll be prepared to pursue a career in fields such as hotel management, travel and tourism management, event planning, and more.
The new hospitality management major, which will begin accepting students in Fall 2019, is a collaboration between Meredith’s AACSB accredited business program and its ACEND accredited nutrition program.
All students will take courses in business and nutrition, core hospitality courses, as well as specialized courses in their chosen concentration. Minors are also available in hospitality management and event planning, both of which pair well with a variety of majors offered at Meredith.
The hospitality field is a half-trillion-dollar industry that continues to grow. Recent labor statistics show increasing hospitality management career opportunities that require a bachelor’s degree.
Meredith’s location in North Carolina’s capital, with plentiful opportunities for internships and employment, will benefit students planning to work in this field. Jobs in hotel management, travel and tourism management, restaurant management, event planning, and more are open to those with hospitality degrees.
