Upon successful completion of this program, students working in the hospitality industry will be able to formulate strategies to lead and manage organizations, explain the economic, technical, legal, and sociocultural environments of a specific company, and explain the essential functions, roles, and responsibilities of management in the different areas of the industry.

“The hospitality industry is fast-paced and offers numerous opportunities in settings ranging from restaurants and hotels to cruises and amusement parks, and our new certificate is designed to help students enter this career path,” said Associate Professor of Business and Department Chair Candace Vogelsong.

Along with a vacation resort, international equestrian competition, and vacation destinations located within Cecil County, there are more than 200 miles of shoreline for nautical activities.
