Northeastern State University – Hospitality and Tourism Management – Tahlequah, OK
Northeastern State University of Tahlequah, Oklahoma, offers a unique four-year program in which students receive a Bachelor of Business Administration degree with a major in Hospitality and Tourism Management.

Besides receiving hospitality education, NSU students gain credibility in their professional development by taking the required core courses of other business students: finance, marketing, accounting, economics, statistics, strategy, and more. As a result, NSU HTM graduates bring potential employers and clients a well-rounded exposure to critical business functions. An NSU HTM degree means the graduate has for all practical purposes a double major in business and hospitality.

Students can choose from two areas of emphasis: meeting and convention management and tourist destination development. All majors study tourism, hotel operations management, human resource management, and advanced administration. NSU aims at practical as well as academic instruction. As a result, all majors take a hands-on hospitality marketing course. In it, students create and design tourism related web sites, brochures, and participate in a hotel sales blitz. Also, they are required to take a paid internship position within the hospitality industry.

The Hospitality and Tourism Management program (arapaho.nsuok.edu/~mdm) has 65 declared majors. NSU is accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. It has more than 7,000 students at Tahlequah, where all HTM courses are based. Several thousand more students attend satellite campuses in Muskogee, Broken Arrow, and Tulsa. Tahlequah, population 14,458, is in the popular tourism region of northeastern Oklahoma in the lakes area of the western Ozarks. It is 70 miles from Tulsa, 170 miles from Oklahoma City, and 260 miles from Dallas. NSU has long been involved in distance learning and due to worldwide inquiries; all HTM classes are available online.
