School of Hospitality and Tourism Leadership

School of Hospitality and Tourism Leadership

The Sunshine State is a big draw for tourists. In Florida alone, the cumulative economic impact of the hospitality industry is a staggering $57 billion dollars — 20 percent of the state's economy. By utilizing partnerships with the leading companies in hospitality and tourism, our students are able to gain hands on experience while also learning about the newest practices being implemented into the state’s largest industry.
