Master of Science in Hospitality Management, Class of 2019
In the program, I was able to gain real life experiences through industry networking events and internship programs. The program also invited industry leaders to be a part of the teaching process which offered me a chance to see what's going on in the real industry. The faculty were really professional and resourceful in providing me with not just skill sets but also their resources and connections within the industry. In fact, I got an internship opportunity through one of my professors which leads to a full time job at Sheraton right after my graduation.
