Food and Hospitality Management
Food and Hospitality Management Department offers undergraduate, graduate and minor programs as well as BS/MBA accelerated programs. We combine rigorous academics, industry projects and partnerships and supportive faculty guidance to help our students enter this exciting industry as leaders.
One of the most distinct qualities of all of our programming is the way we uniquely and individually work to connect each student to their ideal career. Through practiced and well-connected faculty, co-op opportunities, relevant guest lecturers and partnerships with key regional and national employers, our programs build an industry-relevant resume and a strong network before graduation.
In addition, our central location in Philadelphia, the core of the Mid-Atlantic region between New York, Washington D.C., Boston and Baltimore, provides direct access to some of the most prominent restaurants, event venues and food, beverage and flavor companies in the nation. Just steps from 30th Street Station, the main access point in and out of Philadelphia, our location is ideal for attracting prominent guests and providing access to everything urban areas have to offer.
Our guidance, from faculty, expert academic advisors and a committed co-op support team, encourages our students to learn by doing, by networking and by building their resume before graduation.
