Hospitality Management, Foodservice Management (HB16)

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Degrees and Certificates*

Foodservice is the second largest retail industry in the nation, employing more people in more businesses than any other retail industry. The demand for qualified personnel is much greater than the supply. Career opportunities abound in restaurants, hotels, resorts, clubs, conference centers, air and cruise lines, schools and colleges, and health care. The general objective of the Foodservice Management program is to prepare students for employment or self-employment in entry to mid-level supervisory and management careers in any of several types of foodservice operations and related positions in production, planning, sales and marketing. In addition, successful completion of the program provides graduates with the opportunity to transfer to Bachelor of Science degree programs in Hospitality Management/Administration in top universities. The program received the V.I.P. Award from Connecticut’s Department of Education and the Governor’s Connecticut Tourism Award.
