We are one of the world’s most established and successful hospitality and tourism management programs, with over 75 years of producing hospitality leaders. A key advantage of our program is that we are part of the Isenberg School of Management giving our students a more effective education with courses such as marketing, business information, communications, finance, and accounting, as well as in the specialization of hospitality and tourism management.
Our mission is to teach, advance, and support the practice and management of the hospitality and tourism industries, and to address the needs of its multiple constituencies. We also strive to advance industry knowledge through original and adaptive research and scholarship and serve the industry through programs on and off campus designed to advance and renew the education of those practicing in the field.
Our Program Learning Objectives (PLOs) cover:
Beyond the classroom, our HTM students participate in a number of professional clubs and events, including HTM Career Day. Our students also enjoy additional learning opportunities with departmental speakers, academics, and practitioners in a variety of forums. And our alumni regularly return to Isenberg to share their experiences and successes.
By providing a strong foundation of management and business knowledge, our students graduate highly qualified, well-rounded, and ready to step into exciting careers in this dynamic and globally expanding industry.
Our program maintains an active relationship with many alumni around the globe. This allows us to offer opportunities for students to network and be mentored by those working in the industry. This happens in both formal and informal ways.
Formally, through the Seminar in Hospitality and Tourism Leadership course, students learn about leadership principles while also being partnered with a current industry leader who mentors them throughout the semester. For many students, this mentee-mentor relationship continue throughout their academic and professional careers.
Informally, our active and engaged alumni are connected to our students and department. This includes our esteemed Leadership Board and Young Alumni Council. To learn more about the HTM alumni network click here.
