The Hospitality Management Associate in Science Degree and related Certificate programs prepare students for a wide variety of positions with hotels, resorts, country clubs, restaurants, cruise lines, travel and tourism organizations, event planning and convention services, commercial recreation facilities, and more.

Great Bay is located in one of New Hampshire’s premier tourism regions. Our students have access to a variety of internship and job placement opportunities, which provide them with a distinct advantage in the marketplace. A few of our Hospitality Management partners include: Wentworth by the Sea Hotel & Spa, The Chamber Collaborative of Greater Portsmouth, Strawbery Banke Museum, and The Walt Disney Company.

Students interested in Hospitality Management have three concentrations to choose from. The Hospitality Management – Direct Career option is recommended for students who plan to begin a professional career immediately after graduation. It is designed to provide students with the flexibility to sample a wide range of elective alternatives in order to tailor the program to individual career interests.

The Hospitality Management – Tourism & Events option appeals to the service-oriented student who is passionate about integrating sustainable approaches to planning and managing meaningful travel, tourism, and event experiences. This program culminates with a student-designed educational trip, in which students take an active role in making a positive impact on the host community’s environment, culture, and local economy. This option offers several pathways for students to begin a career after graduation, start a small business, or transfer to a four-year institution.

The Hospitality Management - University Transfer option is specifically designed to prepare students for transfer to a four-year college or university. The pre-determined course selections not only provide students with a solid foundation in business and hospitality, but also offer maximization of transfer credits. This option ensures seamless transfer into the Hospitality Management programs at UNH, SNHU, GSC, and other universities.

Certificate programs in Event & Meeting Planning Management, Hotel/Restaurant Management, and Spa Management, offer students an opportunity to specialize in a particular area of hospitality. Most credits in each certificate program may be applied toward a degree in Hospitality Management. The certificate may also serve as a stand-alone certificate for professionals preparing for a career change or advancement opportunities.

Great Bay Hospitality students may also earn several industry-recognized certifications including the Cvent Certificate for event planners, the Delphi Certificate for sales and catering, and AHLEI’s Managing Front Office Operations Certificate for hotel professionals.

Requirements

Participation in an internship requires the student to follow the college’s immunization policy (see college catalog).  Depending upon the site, the student may be required to possess and maintain professional liability insurance.  For unpaid internships, the student must possess and maintain accident insurance. See college catalog for purchase options available through the college.

 

Students in the Hospitality Management Degree and related Certificate programs must be able to demonstrate the ability to:

  • Communicate effectively using written, and oral techniques, including the use of technology;
  • Conduct themselves in a professional manner;
  • Work independently and in teams;
  • Work with frequent interruptions, respond appropriately to unexpected situations, and cope with variations in workload and stress levels.

 

Transfer Credit Policy

In addition to Great Bay transfer credit policies, transfer of courses in Hospitality Management more than ten years old will be evaluated by the program coordinator on an individual basis.
