Meredith College to Offer a New Bachelor’s Degree Program in Hospitality Management

Meredith College, the liberal arts educational institution for women in Raleigh, North Carolina, has announced that it is offering a new bachelor’s degree program in hospitality management. The new major will be a collaboration between the college’s programs in business and nutrition.

The hospitality field is a half-trillion-dollar industry that continues to grow. Jobs in hotel management, travel and tourism management, restaurant management, event planning, and more are open to those with hospitality degrees.

Students seeking a bachelor’s degree in hospitality management will be able to select from three concentration options: culinary management; hotel and lodging management; or event planning. All students will take courses in business and nutrition, core hospitality courses including Principles of Hospitality Management, Hospitality Marketing & Sales, and Strategic Hospitality Management, along with specialized courses in their chosen concentration.

Jo Allen, president of Meredith College, stated that “hospitality management is a natural addition to Meredith’s offerings. Our students are known for their work-readiness, communication skills, and attention to detail. These are three key qualities for the hospitality industry.”
