Study Abroad Opportunities

The hospitality industry is international in scope and scale. Its customers and suppliers routinely operate across national boundaries. Even if the hospitality worker never leaves his or her home area, it is likely that he or she will interact with international visitors on a regular basis. Given this international influence, future leaders in hospitality are strongly encouraged to participate in an international experience prior to graduation. The purpose of an international experience is to gain an appreciation for the cultural, economic, social and logistical differences of travel and tourism. Toward this end, the School of Hospitality Leadership will offer a wide range of short and long-term opportunities.  Currently, the School of Hospitality Leadership is developing programs on a global scale.
