Overview

Program Overview

The Hospitality Management program at Temple University prepares students to be middle-level and, eventually, upper-level managers in the tourism and hospitality industry. The degree program is based not only on the practical application of management techniques, but also on the theoretical foundation that defines the profession. This makes the degree program clearly distinct from generic management curricula that do not include an industry-specific core.
