The USF Hospitality Management program requires you to complete two summer internships or jobs before you graduate, and because it is a requirement, we put a great amount of effort into helping you select the right internship for your interests.

We also strongly encourage you to mix it up – do one summer working in food and beverage administration in Europe, and another serving as an event planner’s apprentice at a local luxury hotel. There’s no better way to discover the areas in which you’ll shine!

A Huge Advantage in Finding Internships

Attending USF provided a huge advantage in finding internship opportunities in the city. Not only that, but I was able to participate in other leadership opportunities such as IMEX in Las Vegas and the Hotel Experience in New York."
