The Leader in Hospitality Business Education Offers Essential Skills and Credentials to Help Meet Presidential Push for Hospitality Industry
The School of Hospitality Business – a unique, industry-specific School within U.S. News-ranked Michigan State University’s (MSU) Broad College of Business – is launching a new Management Certificate in the Business of Hospitality.
This online program is particularly relevant because recent statistics show that the U.S. hospitality and tourism industry is one of the prime drivers of the U.S. economy, projecting to add about 1.7 million new jobs through 2020. This job growth also aligns with President Obama’s recent initiative to significantly increase travel and tourism in the United States.
MSU’s Management Certificate in the Business of Hospitality will help students improve their job performance and marketability by mastering the essential practices of hospitality management. They will gain the skills, knowledge and credentials necessary to break into or get promoted within a career field that has income and advancement potential.
“Professionals in all segments of the hospitality industry must commit to staying competitive in such a rapidly changing marketplace,” emphasizes Dr. Ronald Cichy, Professor and Director of The School of Hospitality Business. “Those willing to invest in their skills and credentials can take their career to the next level by delivering improved results.”
This 100% online hospitality management certificate is a respected credential that can help students complement their experience in the industry. Students will also expand their skills and knowledge across a wide range of hospitality areas: from human resources to marketing to law and to information systems. Students will receive this valuable instruction through state-of-the-art online technology powered by University Alliance.
This online classroom features streaming video lectures with convenient 24/7 access, as well as a variety of interactive tools that connect instructors and participants, including discussion boards, live chat rooms and email.
MSU’s online certificate program is comprised of three eight-week courses: Hospitality Business Operations, Hospitality Business Management and Hospitality Leadership. Presented by campus-based, world-renowned faculty, these comprehensive professional development programs use a step-by-step approach, as each course builds upon the last, preparing students to excel in their hospitality management career.
