East Carolina University – Department of Hospitality Management – Greenville, NC
East Carolina University is a large public university with a small college atmosphere. We offer a distinctive educational experience based on a strong tradition of teaching excellence, comprehensive research, and regional outreach. East Carolina University is recognized as a doctoral-granting, research-intensive national university. Our enrollment is over 27,000 students, including over 4,000 graduate students. The campus is located in Greenville, North Carolina, which is about 25 minutes west of the Pamlico Sound, and 1½ hours from either the state capital (Raleigh) or the beaches of the Outer Banks.

Since being established in 1989, the mission of ECU’s Hospitality Management Department has been to prepare future hospitality leaders for entry into management positions in the hospitality and tourism industry. The four-year bachelor’s degree program includes general education courses, specialized courses in lodging, foodservice, and tourism management, and a minor in business administration. A two-semester internship experience is incorporated into the sophomore year, and a self-paced management level internship is required before the senior year. With a current enrollment of over 450 students, ECU’s Hospitality Management Department is the largest program in North Carolina and one of the fastest growing in the Southeastern United States. Alumni of the program are employed in management capacities in all segments of the hospitality and tourism industry, including hotels, restaurants, resorts and spas, private clubs, and convention centers. The student organizations are very dynamic and actively involved in campus life and in the local, state, and national communities. Networking opportunities for students are abundant through the Executives in the Classroom series, on-campus interviews, and student representation at the International Hotel Show in New York, the National Restaurant Association Show in Chicago, the Annual Conference of the National Society for Minorities in Hospitality, the N. C. Governor’s Conference on Tourism, and numerous other events.
