Prospective Students

Thinking of pursuing a career in hospitality?

If you’re just starting out in higher education and looking forward to a long and successful career in hospitality; if you are looking to advance your career; or if you are looking for the needed knowledge to grow your own company, a degree or certificate is a step in the right direction. Earning it from the School of Hotel and Restaurant Management (SHRM) in The W. A. Franke Collge of Business is even better.

You’ll experience personal interactions with your professors as you further your education. Our programs are designed to prepare you for the ‘real world’ of hospitality—with an eye on the specific career you want.

We set the bar high, and we expect great things from our students. What SHRM students get in return are all of the benefits of a high-caliber business school with a personal touch and close interactions with faculty and staff.
