Students also gain practical experience through on-the-job training in hotels and resorts.
Upon successful completion of the associate degree program, students may seek entry-level positions in hotels, restaurants, convention facilities, and resorts. Possible positions include assistant front office manager, assistant food and beverage manager, housekeeping manager, event planner, and sales representative.
