Faulkner State – Hospitality & Restaurant Management – Bay Minette, AL
The diverse and dynamic hospitality and tourism industry provides challenging and exciting career opportunities for people with a wide variety of interests. US Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that by the year 2010, the industry will employ 14.8 million people. Of these, 18-20% or roughly 2.9 million people will be employed in managerial, professional or sales and marketing position. According to a report by The Council on Hotel, Restaurant, and Institutional Education Hospitality schools in the United States are only graduating 4,300 people each year. This low number insures graduates of many opportunities nationwide.
Students in our program are
required to complete 2400 hours of paid internship placement prior to graduation.
The internship program not only provides students with a way to offset
expenses but also insures that that resume includes solid work experience
prior to graduation. Our program boasts a 98% placement rate for our graduates
as well as articulation agreements with more than 40 colleges and universities
across the United States.
