Whenever people travel, they need a temporary place to call home. And the more people travel—across the country or around the globe—the more homes away from home they will need. This shows why hospitality management is such an attractive program of study for students who seek a potentially lucrative career in the hospitality industry.
Sheboygan County, the immediate vicinity around Lakeland College, has become a national destination for tourists, offering premier hotel accommodations, world-class golf courses, and natural scenic beauty. Lakeland’s hospitality management program makes good use of these local assets in the training of its students.
Our hospitality management curriculum is one of the few dedicated programs of its type in the region. Whether one is focusing on the lodging, food service, or golf and tourism industries, hospitality management stands as one of Lakeland’s most immediately practical majors.
Students who major in Hospitality Management will be able to:
- understand and apply business and economic concepts and theories to hospitality industry contexts;
- appreciate the scope, magnitude, and nature of employment within the hospitality industry;
- demonstrate their skills in, knowledge of, commitment to, and talent for the hospitality industry;
- comprehend the ways in which economic institutions and behaviors at various levels influence business decisions and practices; and
- communicate business and economic information to stakeholders in a clear and professional manner.
