Hospitality Event Management Emphasis

Greenbrier Valley Campus only

Lodging and food service jobs within West Virginia’s fast-growing field of tourism represent a promising area for career development. The Associate in Applied Science Degree in Hospitality and Tourism Management, offered at the College’s Greenbrier Valley Campus, prepares students to enter, with appropriate work experience in the field, mid-management, management, or entrepreneurial positions in resorts, restaurants, hotels or motels, inns, or bed and breakfast enterprises. The curriculum is comprised of general education and business support courses, knowledge- and skill-based courses in lodging and food service management, and experiential-based internships in local resorts, motels, and restaurants. This combination of knowledge, experience, and skills will enable the customer service oriented, hard-working graduate to perform with excellence in the expanding tourism industry.

The Event Management concentration is designed for students seeking careers within the hospitality industry concentrating on convention services and event and meeting management and those already employed in the industry wishing to attain advanced positions. This program provides an internship opportunity to give students real-world experience in their last semester. The program will also provide students with courses that are easily transferable to undergraduate degrees in Hospitality and Tourism.
