Frequently Asked Questions
Our graduates of the BS in Hospitality Management Degree Program can expect to enter a workforce that is more than ready to accommodate them, though not without some competition. With only 48,000 positions currently in the U.S., and with another 2,000 expected to be added by 2026, Hospitality is a competitive, but growing field. One key factor in the Hospitality job market that other positions may not have is location. Positions are the most prevalent and the most available in areas in which there is a lot of tourism, such as New York City, Miami, and San Diego.
As would be expected, most graduates of the BS in Hospitality Management Degree Program ultimately find work in the hospitality field. And while you may think this just means hotel management, there are other settings in which this degree is easily applied, such as Revenue Management and Convention Service Management, two important and oft-related careers adjacent to the more-commonly considered hotel management positions.
