Master’s in hospitality business management students at the Lerner College of Business and Economics at UD learn problem solving and decision-making in response to the rapid growth of information management needs in the hospitality and tourism sectors of the industry.

In courses like Data Analysis in the Hospitality Industry or Hospitality Management Research, students gain not only the skills to gather insight and industry data, but also the expertise to analyze and apply it to better serve customers, employees, bottom lines and more.

The M.S. in hospitality business management program also includes a 6-week advanced lodging practicum, during which students work at the University’s Courtyard by Marriott performing a general manager’s duties, tasks and responsibilities.
