Robert Morris University – Hospitality And Tourism Programs – Pittsburgh, PA
Robert Morris University is the only university in the Pittsburgh area to offer a 4-year degree program in Hospitality or Tourism. These programs are designed to meet a growing need for managers in the hotel, resort, restaurant, food service, travel and tourism industries. This program provides a 4-year Bachelor of Science in Business Administration degree or Bachelor of Science in Hospitality or Tourism. The BSBA programs in the Hospitality Management and Tourism Management areas are designed for students who anticipate a need for in-depth business and quantitative expertise, while the BS degree with a concentration in Hospitality or Tourism are designed for first time or transfer student who desire to be immersed in industry-based courses within the hospitality and tourism industry with less emphasis on general business and quantitative courses.

The educational philosophy of the Hospitality and Tourism Management program at Robert Morris centers on providing the kind of education today that business leaders of tomorrow will need. The program is unique in that it allows students to choose a concentration in either Hospitality or Tourism and offers students an opportunity to study in Europe, Asia, Australia or South American. With their abilities, interests, and career goals in mind, faculty advisors and an industry board of visitors provide guidance to students in selecting the most appropriate elective courses and externship sites.

An integral part of the program is its required externships in which students gain practical experience by working in international and national industry settings. Graduates of the program are prepared to successfully compete for international and national management positions in the lodging (hotel, motel, resort, convention centers), food and beverage (restaurant, fast-food, industrial food service), and tourism (cruise ships, airlines, tours, attractions, casino, club) segments. The Hospitality and Tourism Program works in close relationship with its regional business community, because of Robert Morris's proximity to Pittsburgh and the international airport. Graduates that have completed a Hospitality and Tourism degree, will find management positions in a dynamic and progressive industry. Lastly, students are also well prepared for graduate school.
