Beginning in Fall 2021, the Jonathan M. Tisch Center of Hospitality will offer the NEW MS in Global Hospitality Management. The 36-credit program, includes a core curriculum, a wide range of electives, a leadership capstone, and the opportunity to complete an internship. With a strong focus on business analytics, entrepreneurship, and technology, the MS in Global Hospitality Management will give you the skills and knowledge expected of successful leaders in hotel management, food and beverage, and other hospitality industry professions.
Taught by faculty members who are leading industry practitioners, the program is structured to meet the needs of working professionals and full-time students, allowing opportunities for either part-time or full-time study in any semester. Typically, students complete the degree within one and a half years of full-time study or in two to three years of part-time study.
The general core, comprised of seven business-oriented courses, will develop your key competencies as a hospitality professional. These courses will provide you with a solid foundation in finance, data analysis, business communications and strategic thinking—in each course, hospitality cases and examples will help you frame your learning. Our wide range of electives allow you to customize the curriculum to your specific interests, and cover a variety of topic areas, including finance and asset management, entrepreneurship, marketing and branding, and operations. A leadership capstone course completes the degree. Learning occurs both in the classroom and in the industry—through various networking opportunities, lecture series, research projects, and extra-curricular events.
If you have relevant work experience, you may be eligible to waive a course or the internship requirement with departmental approval. Waivers permit students to take additional courses in selected areas; they do not reduce the number of credits required for the degree.
