For the most part, instructional delivery consists of in-person classroom-based lectures. In appropriate subjects, lecture courses have a fully integrated laboratory component.

Graduate Degree Programs

  • The Master of Administrative Science (MAS) degree is a 30-credit degree to enhance the administrative and leadership skills of graduates. The program combines both cognitive and affective (interactive) instruction through case studies, simulations, individual and group exercises, and fieldwork that helps to develop critical managerial effectiveness. The MAS educational experience seeks to develop critical administrative competencies in a supportive learning environment in conjunction with specific and clear feedback.


  • The Master of Science degree in Hospitality Management Studies, which consists of 33 credits, is structured to meet the educational needs of adult learners working as managers, entrepreneurs, educators or other professionals in business and industry. It is designed to provide a hospitality management education with an academically rigorous, yet flexible, program of study that meets the requirements for a professional master’s degree. For working adults seeking to upgrade their professional skills to enhance their careers, the degree program increases analytical, managerial and leadership competencies and will provide graduates with the requisite preparation for career advancement in various hospitality-related professional areas.
