Hospitality Management Schools

hospitality suite Explore Hospitality Management schools!

Careers are said to grow the most in the next several years of all food industry jobs.

The following hospitality management schools have other programs as well as hospitality management. We are just showing you schools that have separate hospitality management programs. Some schools offer only HM programs and some schools have it as one of many of their programs.

We have not shown schools that have hospitality management classes as part of a culinary art program since most schools do have some classes in management in their culinary art degree or certificate. Read the curriculum to see how strong the management focus is or ask the schools administrator.

The following schools have a separate management program for a hospitality management degree or certificate but may or may not be their only culinary program.

Some of the best are Kendall in Chicago, Stratford in Virginia, Widener in Pennsylvania, and Johnson and Wales (five locations). There are also outstanding technical institutes and community colleges. Their websites should show their credentials and awards. Explore to find the right one for you.
