Hotel & Restaurant Management
The places where we gather to eat, to relax, or to stay overnight when we’re far from home all require the management of talented and well trained individuals to keep their businesses successful.
To be an effective manager in the hospitality industry, one needs to have a great understanding of both front-room and front-office procedures, enhanced by a working knowledge of the kitchen preparation process and other essential behind-the-scenes operations.
The Bachelor of Science Degree program in Hotel and Restaurant Management at The Art Institute of Pittsburgh - Online Division combines the teaching of business management with culinary appreciation. Students will have an opportunity to gain key knowledge and skills necessary for hotel, resort and casino industry management.
But it is not only about management and culinary presentation – the Hotel & Restaurant Management online program is about proper customer service and excellence in hospitality. Students are taught to develop quick and effective decision-making skills and enhance their human relations ability.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), “Employment of food service managers is expected to decline 3 percent from 2010 to 2020, as the number of eating and drinking establishments opening is expected to decline from the previous decade. Despite these reductions, new employment opportunities for food service managers will emerge in grocery stores and other retail and recreation industries to meet the growing demand for quick food in a variety of settings.
Additionally, the BLS states, “Those with a degree in hospitality, restaurant or food service management should have the best job opportunities.”
