When you graduate with a B.S. Business Administration in Hospitality Management from USF, your career options are almost limitless. Our hospitality graduates’ careers include event planning in high-end hotels, managing wineries or country clubs, and exciting entrepreneurial ventures, such as opening a restaurant to becoming a general manager or president of a hotel. USF provides a highly personalized and customizable business curriculum that will prepare you to seamlessly enter the hospitality industry of your choice.
At USF, we help you discover the areas of hospitality that most interest you, and we take great pride in being able to offer a personalized experience. The hospitality faculty are serious about mentoring; when you find the area of hospitality that most intrigues you, they will work with you to create a curriculum designed specifically to set you up for success upon graduation.
The Hospitality Management program emphasizes student experience to facilitate your success. We keep class sizes small and offer numerous opportunities for involvement in student organizations, most notably with clubs like the Hospitality Management Association (HMA) and the USF chapter of Club Managers’ Association of America (CMAA).
Not only do we encourage experiential learning for our students, but we have a well-structured hospitality internship requirement that helps prepare you for internships and jobs in San Francisco and around the world. We encourage you to diversify across several industries to best match your interests and skill sets.
