Overview — Designed specifically for the general hospitality industry, this program emphasizes the education, experience and skill development needed for mid-management/supervisory levels of employment in the hotel/motel industry.

Although this is a day program, selected courses are scheduled for evenings and weekends on a rotating basis; accelerated and online options are offered for some courses. You will be required to complete an internship in the course HOTEL-130.

Skills and aptitudes necessary for success in the program include a service orientation, willingness to learn, and stamina to work long hours including evenings, weekends and holidays.


Dual Degree Option — Add specified courses to this program to earn associate degrees in both Event Management and Hotel/Hospitality Management. See your program advisor for details.


Career Pathway — You can earn the Foundations of Lodging and Hospitality Management technical diploma on your way to completing this associate degree. Contact an MATC advisor for information.


Career Outlook — Program graduates are prepared for employment in one of the fastest growing segments of the nation's economy. Due to a shortage of qualified hospitality professionals, graduates with energy, training and experience have an opportunity to make a difference.

  • Plan the operations within a hospitality organization
  • Organize hospitality resources to achieve the goals of the organization
  • Direct individuals and/or processes to meet organizational goals
