Boston University – School
of Hospitality Administration – Boston, MA
Our program is designed
to prepare students for management positions in the hospitality industry.
In conjunction with your hospitality courses, you will take a variety of
challenging liberal arts and management courses to develop a well-rounded
education. You will exercise your capacity for critical thinking, clear
expression (often in more than one language), and problem-solving – all
essential skills for success in the business world.
Beyond the classroom, you
will accumulate at least eight hundred hours of field experience in two
separate work assignments. Based on an average workday (although in hospitality,
there are no "average" workdays!), those two experiences equal more than
six months of résumé-enhancing field experience. In fact,
most students average 2,000 hours of work experience by the time they graduate
– nearly a full year of on-the-job training. Other hands-on opportunities
are plentiful and varied: internships in London, Paris, Sydney, and other
international cities, as well as in Boston and throughout the United States;
learning directly from top-tier professionals through programs such as
the mentor program; an aggressive Career Services Office; and special short
project assignments available through School job postings.
Boston University combines
an unwavering commitment to distinguished and innovative teaching with
extraordinary access to academic and pre-professional opportunities. Virtually
every subject in higher education is available to you. And your classmates
will represent all fifty states and more than 135 countries, exposing you
to an astonishing variety of cultures and backgrounds.
As a student at the School
of Hospitality Administration, you are also a student of the city of Boston.
One of the world's great urban centers, Boston boasts, at last count, 1,000
restaurants and 100 hotels. A thriving cultural center and the birthplace
of the American Revolution, Boston draws visitors from around the globe
who sample its sights, sounds, and flavors. Business professionals also
flock to Boston, a center for high technology, medicine, education, and
