Management Major, BBA - Hospitality and Tourism Management Concentration

Campus: NYC, Westchester


The Hospitality and Tourism Management concentration prepares students for management careers in the hospitality and tourism industry. Students acquire skills in the areas of hotel, restaurant, and tourism management; business management; accounting; cost control and analysis; law; human resources; strategy; and e- commerce. They also learn how to analyze and respond as managers to changing laws; union activities; cultural, social, and environmental issues; and domestic and international trends in the hospitality and tourism industry as a whole. Since Hospitality and Tourism Management is a specialized area of study, the requirements for this concentration are more extensive than those for the other management areas.
