If you are considering earning a bachelor of science in business, but not sure which business degree to choose, you may want to consider the hospitality management degree at Grand Canyon University! Here are five reasons to study hospitality management at GCU:

Learn from the Context of Our Christian Worldview

Grand Canyon University is a premier private Christian college. As a student in GCU’s Colangelo College of Business, you will gain a strong foundation in professional and ethical management practices through the lens of our Christian worldview. In addition, our curriculum can help you learn to make ethical decisions when dealing with issues in business and organizational behavior management.

Benefit from Small Class Sizes  

In Grand Canyon University’s hospitality management program, you can enjoy small campus or online classes that offer engaging class discussions about topics such as hospitality services marketing, revenue generation for hospitality and human resources. With the help of this communal environment and advanced curriculum, you can learn the networking and communication skills that are necessary for entering the field of hospitality management.

Work at GCU’s Hospitality Properties

Our campus is ideal for anyone interested in studying hospitality management. We own the GCU Hotel and Canyon 49, a restaurant adjacent to the hotel. We also own the GCU Golf Course and club house. All of these properties are open to the public and staffed by GCU students. These facilities are an amazing asset to your learning experience, as you can see firsthand how a real hotel or golf course is managed in an efficient and effective manner.

As a student in this program, you will be required to accumulate a number of hours of paid or unpaid experience in this industry so that you may gain a valuable, hands-on learning experience.

Prepare for Your Future

GCU’s Bachelor of Science in Hospitality Management prepares you for a management position in the hospitality industry. If you continue to push yourself within your career, this degree can lead you to eventual leadership positions within the field.

Alternatively, if you decide that you would like to continue your education at GCU, then you may select from a variety of master’s degrees, such as an MBA or MS in Leadership.

Enjoy Your Career
