Hospitality, Tourism & Event Management, B.S.

Hospitality, Tourism and Event Management (HTEM) is the world’s largest and most diverse industry. Our students prepare to launch their careers in one of the fastest growing and most dynamic global fields. We provide students with the management, preparation, problem solving and communication skills required for a career in this demanding profession.

An HTEM degree can lead to a myriad of employment opportunities. Graduates of our program often excel in careers in hotel, resort or restaurant management, event and conference organization, food and beverage sales and marketing, concert and festival planning, wedding coordination, amusement park management or cruise line services.

Our program is accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Programs in Hospitality Administration and is an institutional member of the International Council on Hotel, Restaurant and Institutional Education. Students are also encouraged to participate in our student chapter of Eta Sigma Delta, an international hospitality management honor society or one of our registered student organizations for enhanced networking and hands-on learning experiences.

Cater to your career desires. The sky is the limit. The SIU College of Business and Analytics supports HTEM students with career services and learning opportunities within and beyond the classroom through internships, community service and excellent academic training.
