Marylhurst University’s new degrees in hospitality management are intended to prepare students for careers in the hotel and restaurant industries, as well as with nonprofits.


We’ve heard millennials are collecting experiences not things, and that may be one of the reasons behind the increased career opportunities in the hospitality and tourism industry. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, jobs for lodging managers will grow steadily at a rate of 8 percent between now and 2024, and most full-service hotel chains hire candidates with a bachelor’s degree in hospitality or hotel management.

To meet the growing demand in the workforce, Marylhurst University now offers a Bachelor of Applied Science and Bachelor of Science degrees in hospitality management. Coursework prepares graduates in the areas of asset management, human resource development, food and beverage operations, service delivery programing and training, sales development and distribution channels, marketing application and platforms, accounting and reporting, strategic planning, financial analysis, and communications.
The hospitality management program aims to prepare students for careers in corporations within the hotel, club, restaurant and destination-marketing industry, government and nonprofit organizations, or to start or run a small business. The program is designed so that interested students may also pursue graduate studies, such as an MBA.
