The course of study in hospitality management includes instruction in hotel and restaurant operations designed to prepare students for various positions in the hospitality industry. What interests many prospective students in this field of study is the extraordinary range of management jobs available. In addition to operational management, graduates will be able to pursue careers in such areas as personnel, marketing, sales, finance, training, facilities management, conference management, and purchasing. Career progression is often very rapid, with companies offering very good financial and professional development packages in recognition of the major shortage of well qualified management graduates for what is one of the world’s largest and fastest growing industries.

This degree is approved through the California Community College Chancellor’s Office. Upon  satisfactory completion of all degree requirements and filing an application for graduation with Admissions and Records, the student’s transcript will reflect completion of this degree.
