Bellevue University, one of the nation’s leaders in preparing students for lifelong success with career-relevant knowledge and skills, recently announced the launch of a new online Bachelor of Science degree program in Hospitality Management. The program prepares students for diverse careers in event venues, resorts, hotels, and restaurant and food service companies, and provides a holistic foundation for the business of hospitality.

“Our B.S. in Hospitality Management brings together the fundamentals of customer service, talent management and marketing all of the services involved in today’s broad and diverse hospitality industry and provides students with the business framework they need to succeed in a rapidly changing world,” said Rebecca Murdock, dean of the Bellevue University College of Business.

According to a 2018 industry analysis by Deloitte, “Global travel industry gross bookings reached $1.6 trillion in 2017, making it one of the largest and fastest-growing sectors in the world. Factoring in indirect economic contributions, travel and tourism now accounts for a staggering 10.2 percent of the global GDP.”

Murdock noted that the University’s Hospitality Management degree consists of 36 general education credits, 51 elective credits, and 40 major credits.

“Because the program is based online, students can stay employed in their current work or family situations and complete their studies without leaving their local community,” she said.

Interested students should contact Bellevue University Relationship Manager Kim Snow, who is located on the Utica, N.Y. campus of Mohawk Valley Community College, at ksnow@bellevue.edu or 315-731-5848.
