HRM in Your Future
Hospitality starts here
We prepare professionals for an industry that loves change – one where mergers and re-branding are a way of life.
Our graduates have an internal toolbox of skills and attitudes that help them adapt and thrive. They think in terms of keeping service fresh and lively. Our recruiters like that.
As prospective students or potential industry partners, we invite you to become a part of this dynamic program. The 2012 Hospitality Leadership students created their "Oath of Hospitality Professionals." It will give you a sense of the depth and breadth of the commitment you will be making to the HRM program and the Hospitality Industry Worldwide. Download the Oath HERE.
The newly renovated HRM East was opened on August 29, 2011 for fall classes. Here is a tour of the new facility from a student's perspective as she shares it with her friend via Skype.
Alumni agree that a highlight of their school experience is their feeling that faculty and staff cared and connected with them all the way through the program.
In-House events such as the HRM Hospitality Fair are just one of the ways we bring emplyoyer connection opportunities to our students.
Throughout the year, fund raising events not only strengthen the HRM student's scholarship opportunities, but they strengthen the bonds we make with the greater HRM community as well.
