Hospitality Management combines the business, customer service, and creative aspects of the food, beverage, and hotel industries.
Students of Hospitality Management learn best practices related to health and safety, sanitation, customer service, sales and marketing, menu planning, restaurant management, banquet and catering services, operation of travel destinations, reserving and managing rooms, housekeeping, security, and facilities management. Through classroom learning and supervised work experiences, students also learn business fundamentals and operational procedures such as inventory control and employee management.
Some schools offer State-Approved (Chapter-74) programs in Hospitality Management. These programs provide all of the training required to begin entry-level work in the field. Other schools may offer a more condensed version of this training, which has been designed at the local level. This is known as Non-Chapter 74 or "Perkins-Only." Learn more about the difference between State-Approved and Local CTE programs.
