Hospitality Management Minor

Earn a minor in hospitality management

Open the door to opportunities in the hospitality industry—plus, earn a career-boosting education and experience.

The hospitality management minor will lead you to a career in lodging, restaurants, bars, clubs, convention and conference centers, event venues, catering companies, and other hospitality service businesses. You’ll learn the ins and outs of the tourism industry, including how to best meet guests’ needs at hotels, how to manage venues, and best practices for catering.

There’s no better place to study hospitality management than a state that’s known for its exceptional Hoosier hospitality.

In three years or fewer, depending on your schedule and courses offered, you can earn this credential.
