The Center for Hospitality Resilience’s brought students in as partners to serve the community through her capstone class in the Master in Hospitality Management program. Center Co-Director Dr. Ceridwyn King devised last fall’s version of the course to be a hands-on learning experience that lent post-pandemic support to a key industry partner.
We spoke recently with several who are working at Philly’s new Live! Casino & Hotel and Maestroe Sports & Entertainment, who were eager to share how their STHM experience has translated directly into a career opportunity that’s as exciting and it is valuable.
