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.
Past graduates include successful restaurant owners, hotel executives at Fairmont Resorts and MGM Resorts; managers of golf and country clubs, along with wineries; and, senior partners at tech companies like Open Table. Once you decide what areas are of most interest to you, and work with your adviser to tailor your curriculum, the sky is truly the limit.
Each of our faculty has at least 15 years of working in the hospitality industry. They 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.
