Hospitality Management combines the study and practice of successfully achieving organizational goals within businesses such as hotels, restaurants, attractions, tour companies, airlines, and other travel-related service providers. The hospitality industry is widely considered to be the core of the enormous travel and tourism sector, which employs nearly 220 million people and generates nearly ten percent of the world’s GDP, according to the World Travel and Tourism Council. Given the rapid growth and increasing importance of the hospitality industry in the United States and abroad, high quality undergraduate and graduate degrees focused on hospitality or hotel management have proliferated in the last decade, supplying the industry with motivated professionals and leaders.
