Drexel University Launches an Online Degree in Hospitality Management

February 9, 2009

Drexel University Online, a pioneer in Internet-based education programs, has added a new online program to its offerings, the Master of Science in Hospitality Management from Drexel’s Goodwin College of Professional Studies. At the national and international levels, the travel and hospitality industries are increasingly requiring that professionals have advanced skill sets. Drexel University Online’s Master of Science in Hospitality Management provides professionals the credentials they need to advance in the industry, with a convenient and flexible online format. Career paths include senior management of hotels and resorts, convention services, strategic development for online distribution of travel services, real-estate development projects and business ownership.

This two-year master’s program provides a solid education in management, travel and tourism and allows students to choose concentrations in global tourism or gaming and casino management. Courses are taught by the same faculty as on campus so students will not have to sacrifice quality for convenience.

Similar to Drexel’s other online degree offerings, the fully-accredited hospitality management program is offered entirely online, and is intended for working professionals. Students have 24/7 online access to class materials, group discussion, instructor feedback and exams.

“We’re very proud to offer our students the outstanding Drexel curriculum within this convenient online format. All of our online programs, including our Master of Science in Hospitality Management, are taught by the same world-renowned faculty as our on-campus courses,” said Dr. Kenneth Hartman, academic director for Drexel University Online.
