Hospitality Management Option
This option is offered within the following major(s):
Available only at OSU-Cascades and via Ecampus.
Course work within the Hospitality Management Option is aimed at developing the students’ knowledge of strategic thinking and its application to the hospitality industry. We define the hospitality industry as including all organizations that provide overnight accommodations and/or food service, to include hotels, destination resorts, hospitals, residence halls, cruise ships, etc.
The proposed courses were selected based on research on workforce development needs, feedback from industry partners/advisors and how these courses would compliment the existing business major curriculum. Input from prospective and existing students in the Hospitality Management Degree was also considered. Specifically, the decision to offer the option through Ecampus was primarily driven from this feedback.
Students graduating from the program are required to possess knowledge of forces in the hospitality industry’s environment that drive change. Furthermore, they should be able to assess the impact of these forces on the hospitality industry, which will enable them to appreciate the cause and effect relationship between the forces that drive change and the firms within the industry. This, in essence, will provide students with the tools to be effective leaders in the hospitality industry.
