What makes USF hospitality management different?
Real World Experience
USF’s location plays a key role in our program’s experiential education emphasis. We visit hotels, five-star restaurants, event venues, and visit with alumni who are now professionals in the field. Our proximity to the world-class wine regions of Sonoma and Napa Valley allows us to provide an educational experience unmatched by other programs.
We emphasize student experiences to facilitate your success and have a well-structured hospitality internship requirement that helps prepare you for jobs in San Francisco or anywhere around the world. We encourage you to diversify across several industries to best match your interests and skillsets.
Future Managers and Leaders
We develop future managers and leaders of the global hospitality industries by integrating management theory and practice with professional industry experience, geared towards business and financial success. Using the San Francisco Bay Area as our extended classroom, we provide students with a business-ready education that enables them to be innovative, professional and socially responsible contributors to society.
