Hospitality Management Major
The B.S. in Business: Hospitality Management program supports the Bay Path University mission by positioning its women graduates for upper-level roles with hospitality, tourism, travel, food and beverage and restaurant industries, by combining a liberal arts core that promotes critical thinking, collaboration and teamwork, written and oral communication skills, and analytic abilities with industry-specific knowledge and competencies.
The program is designed on the content areas of competency from the voluntary accreditation organization, the Accreditation Commission for Programs in Hospitality Administration (ACPHA), and follows its principles and ethics. This degree therefore positions its graduates to understand trends in various fields and to weather changes in these industries.
The Hospitality Management major is a concentration in a highly visible industry in which significant numbers of adult women without degrees are currently working. The degree provides opportunity for women already working in the industry to advance and secure better employment, as well as educational opportunities for those without industry experience to enter the field. The internship in the degree program provides practical experiential learning for all students to apply in-class knowledge to real-world applications.
