The Hospitality Management BA is offered at the Southern New Hampshire University. The hospitality and tourism industry is one of the largest employers in the United States. Globally, it’s even bigger, according to the American Hotel and Lodging Association. In many countries, in fact, hospitality is virtually the only industry and essential to the local economy.


That’s why the Southern New Hampshire University offers the Bachelor of Applied Science in Hospitality Management, a program devoted to preparing students for successful careers in this burgeoning field. As a hospitality management major, you'll acquire the skills to pursue a management career in this field as well as the expertise to become an entrepreneur or small business owner. Our state-of-the-art campus facilities, widely experienced faculty and practical curriculum offer you the opportunity for a unique and richly rewarding learning experience.

The undergraduate hospitality management BAS allows you to follow a general track or focus your studies with a concentration in Event and Convention Management, Hotel and Resort Management or Restaurant and Beverage Management.

The BASHM program is for U.S. students with associate degrees from accredited hospitality (or related) programs. The 21-month program includes industry experience as well as academic requirements.
