Hospitality Management Associate in Science Transfer Preparation

Hospitality Management is the study of different aspects of management and leadership as they relate to the hospitality industry. Included in the hospitality industry are such sectors as hotels, restaurant, travel services, gaming and entertainment, recreation, managed services, and special events. The Associate of Science in Hospitality Management (transfer preparation) will enable students to transfer to universities, including California State Polytechnic University Pomona where a transfer agreement is in place. Transfer requirements at other four-year institutions may vary, so students should consult with a counselor for specific information regarding the transfer requirements for their preferred college or university.
