Hospitality, tourism, and dining make up a large sector of the local, national, and international economy. Professionals who know how to provide world-class hospitality to customers and how to direct a staff dedicated to delivering the same high-levels of service are in demand. Hospitality managers, food managers, beverage administrators, event planners, and hotel administrators make up a large part of the hospitality management field.

How to Prepare For a Career in Hospitality Management

Many hospitality management professionals learn the business from the ground up, taking jobs in hotels, restaurants, and spas with food service, customer service, event planning, or beverage service departments. It's a great way to develop the excellent customer-staff relationship skills that make for a talented manager. Hospitality management classes in marketing, management, business administration, information technology, and food management can provide you with a solid foundation in the field.
